I first (and last!) saw this film in 1951, when I was 19. The theme (from James Bridie's play 'A Sleeping Clergyman') was heredity. Richard Todd, fresh from his triumph in 'The Hasty Heart' (with Ronald Reagan and Patricia Neal) played father and son, supported by delectable leading ladies Glynis Johns and Joan Greenwood and the stalwart Andre Morell, as well as Patrick Macnee, Michael Hordern and George Cole, who, amazingly, is still with us - the veteran of veterans! Come to think of it, so is Richard Todd. 'Every moment was of interest'. I'd love to see it again. Todd had another success with 'The Dambusters' but rapidly fell from favour thereafter, having seemed particularly ridiculous in a South African 'Western' ('The Hellions') which opposed his squat short-trousered policeman to OTT James Booth and Lionel Jeffries. Glynis Johns moved across the pond to Hollywood, and Michael Hordern became the great 'Sir Michael'[.
