the British abroad with no money.
13 February 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Amusing comedy about an assortment of British travellers stranded in Sweden during the era when there were severe restrictions on how much money you could take out of the UK. While waiting anxiously for a ship, they become increasingly desperate in their efforts to acquire money in order to tide them over until they can get back to Britain. Googie Withers is excellent as a smart businesswoman travelling with her male secretary, Yolande Dolan is charming as a slightly daffy girl who may or may not have some money, and Dora Bryan is amusing as the Swedish chambermaid who the hard up British keep trying to sell things to. An entertaining film about one of the odder aspects of postwar British history.
