Regional accent mix up
17 December 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Casting directors in the late forties unfortunately did not have the services of working class actors like Terence Stamp & Michael Caine to draw on but had to rely on graduates of various drama academies who had drilled out of them the various regional accents from the characters who appeared in their films.The upshot of this was that when the parts demanded realistic working class voices there was not the pool of actors to draw on who had been schooled with received BBC pronunciation which was prevalent at the time.Richard Todd appeared to have a cross between a Scottish and Irish accent while James Hayter's Glaswegian accent was unintelligible.Had this film been produced in the mid 60s the producer could have drawn on more realistic characterisations.

That said I enjoyed today seeing this film for the first time on Youtube.com.I especially liked Richard Todd playing Guy Gibson in "The Dam Busters" (1954) and "the Hasty Heart"(1949) with Ronald Reagan.The other reviewers have adequately summarised the plot of the subject film which I rated 6/10.I also liked the fruity voice of Valentine Diall who acted on stage (Son of Oblamov) & t.v. with the late Spike Milligan.
