On the outside, Jennifer appears to be a normal girl. However, she has a
special power which is so far unknown to her, it's hereditary and passed
down through the females of the family: the power to stop ALL machinery.
takes 15 minutes to do so, and does not work if she is asleep, those are
only 'rules'. Now this doesn't affect her so much as she lives in a sleepy
little town that is still all horse and cart, but her boyfriend is a watch
maker who owns a car, so there's some problems there (that just seem odd
coincidences since neither of them know), but when Jennifer goes away to
London, that's when the real fun starts!
A lovely little English screwball comedy, and see if you recognise Jennifer as Truly Scrumptious from 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' - 20 years younger. 10/10!
This searing kitchensink drama exposes the harsh dark, underbelly of
No I was just pulling your leg, this lightweight but amusing romantic comedy has a newspaper reporter involved with a woman that is cursed with an affliction she stops all forms of mechanical machinery and is capable of telling the time without the aid of a clock. Henceforth she may be not all that marriageable for a newspaper man.
A set of rural English characters make up this whimsical film, the type of gentle B-grade farce that Britain used to be known for making before the 'orrible 60s and 70s.

This is essentially a one joke film.Sally Anne Bowes plays a girl who stops any mechanical machinery within 15 minutes of having contact with it.So this means that the writer ensures that she makes contact with all types of machinery.From cars,trains,film projectors and planes,she stops them all. Basil Radford and Naunton Wayne play multiple roles as the operators of the various types of machinery. Gordon Jackson plays a journalist who publicised her unique talent.As a result she becomes a pariah.However true love wins out in every respect.A young Gordon Jackson plays a typical journalist who must continue to make love to Bowes to counter her talents.
