This is one of my favourite movies of its type. I first saw it when it first appeared (sixty years ago), and I have seen it several times in recent years. It gets better with each viewing. It has a pretty believable plot, very good dialogue, and the characters are great. I wish films like this could still be made. It has, of course, no resemblance to real life today (for which heartfelt thanks), and in fact not much resemblance to the life when it was made, but who can resist the overall pleasant atmosphere? It is sad to relate that the sequel "Maytime in Mayfair" was a complete let-down. I am at a complete loss to understand why this excellent film isn't available on DVD.
