Storyline

Set in England, post-World War III; three young women attempt to balance their waitress jobs and their respective love-lives whilst their employer's restaurant - and all the waitresses - is investigated for potential black-market food trading. This light-hearted, romantic comedy is refreshingly heart-warming despite its subject matter. This is helped by tongue-in-cheek performances from the main actresses and a snappy script.

From the charm school
1 May 2017 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This film comes from Highbury Studios.It was known as the charm school,with the idea of producing actors who would be taught the skills needed to be a film actor.Most actors were never heard of again.However David Tomlinson was on his way up.In fact this was one of 7 films he appeared in during 1948.The reason this film was made was because of the ad valorum tax slapped on American films by the government. So the American companies sent no new films to the UK.Rank was encouraged to fill the gap with films such as this.This modest production was designed as a supporting feature.The theme of the black market was very much a talking point at the time.
