A Small Shopkeeper takes on the Government during the Festival of Britain
29 March 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A wonderful look at life in London during the early 1950's. Stanley Holloway and Kathleen Harrison play Mr and Mrs Lord, who run a small corner shop in the middle of a bombed out street. When the Government decide to build an exhibition site, to celebrate the Festival of Britain, the building work is well advanced, until somebody sees that the Lords shop is right the middle of where the main road, and the pedestrian underpass should be. The Lords try to contact their local MP, the mayor, and anybody else who can help them, finally having to barricade themselves along with the other family members inside the shop, until somebody can come up with a solution. Holloway and Harrison are superb as usual, as is a young George Cole, long before his days as Arthur Daley, also giving good support is Dandy Nichols Eileen Moore, and Naunton Wayne as the Government Minister, who has to come up a solution to keep everybody happy.
