Trivia

The partially obscured poem on the blackboard behind Arnold and Arlette is the third verse of P.B. Shelley's "Good-Night" poem. The complete verse is "To hearts which near each other move; From evening close to morning light, The night is good; because, my love, They never say good-night". See more »

Goofs

When Arlette reads the second verse of P.B. Shelley's "Love's Philosophy" she says "What's all this kissing worth, if thou kiss not me". The correct line is "What is all this sweet work worth, if thou kiss not me". See more »

Quotes

Arnold Dickson: And what's all that stuff on your face?
Julie Dickson: Nothing. Only a little powder and... well, we were just playing about with Arlette's makeup, Daddy. What's wrong in a little makeup anyway?
Arnold Dickson: You're too young, that's all. What sort of a party was this?
Helen Dickson: I'm quite sure it was innocuous.
Arnold Dickson: I asked Julie.
Arnold Dickson: What sort of a party was this?
Julie Dickson: It was a disgusting orgy, of course!

Yes today British male teachers have to be very careful of vexatious litigation from young female pupils if they decide to give them home tuition.The danger is that these pupils may become emotionally involved and if their amatory wishes and advances are thwarted, may take legal action against the teacher.Far better to restrict tuition to the classroom or have the girl's parent or other reliable chaperone on hand to witness the lesson if home tuition is necessary.My son is a teacher and gives a few lessons in pupils' homes but always safeguards his professional reputation in this way.Back in 1949 when this film was made society in Britain was much less politically correct and less litigious.

How young looked Petula Clark and what a vixen looked Mai Zetterling.I thought I recognised the piece played on the piano by Petula towards the end as being heard in the musical soundtrack of "Pride & Prejudice" 1995 TV miniseries by Mary Bennett (Lucy Briers).
