Very similar to Passport to Pimlico
9 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

This feels awfully like an Ealing film.Maybe because the plot is similar to Passport To Pimlico and some of the actors in that film appear in this.Probably this is because the ability to click a snook at authority was very popular at the time.The war may have been over for 6 years but it didn't feel like it.We still had rationing.Interesting to see the way the South Bank looked in the aftermath of the war.Interesting also to see Dandy Nicholls some 15 years before she would find fame as Mrs Alf Garnett in"Till Death Us Do Part".Also of course George Cole who was forging a reasonable film career till he found fame in Minder.Finally all one can say about Kathleen Harrison is that she was a national treasure.
