I would love to see this again & wonder if any of these gems from that period will ever be transferred to DVD.
7 February 2005 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

I agree with the other comments and would add that the players are outstanding, playing roles not usually associated with them. Cecil Parker and Celia Johnson have always portrayed toffs and to see them cast as Social workers is unusual. Almost like Peter Ustinov in "Hot Millions" - another gem. Harry Fowler is the quintessential wide boy and plays the part to perfection. He shares this talent with Micael Caine - who is often miscast - as a toff ("Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" - where he is completely out of his depth reprising the David Niven (the quintessential toff) role in "Bedtime Story" - with Marlon Brando. And the young Joan Collins is perfect as a working class girl - she too was regularly miscast as a society type. All in all, a wonderful piece of cinema & I hope it gets re-issued, along with "The Liile Farm" (Country Matters by H.E. Bates) and "The Happy Valley" - both brilliant films. I wonder if it would be possible, using the good offices of IMDb, to open a forum to petition for the re-issue of some of the classics of the 50's & 60's? I can think of Toi, le venin; A Cold Wind in August: Les Amants: Les Valseuses; Dimendicare Venetia Loulou & many others.
