Storyline

"Five-Sided Triangle", while geometrically incorrect, might be a better title for this film that the two it has. A private in the Guards is forced to leave his girl friend in the (not-for-long) empty house of a high-ranking civil servant. The son discovers her and promptly falls in love. When the daughter returns, she decides that it would be best if the girl got together with her boy friend, not realizing that the sentry has worshipped her from afar, the daughter. A further complication is that the sentry's commanding officer is in love with her also. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Minor UK comedy.
28 December 2013 | by (Co. Kerry Ireland) – See all my reviews

I am inserting reviews for all films that I've seen that currently lack one, my very brief review from time of viewing follows... 'Minor British comedy about a rather scatty Irish girl who falls for a guard at St James Palace, slight but watchable.' I saw the film on itv in the UK on 30 Apr 1984, so almost 30 years ago, I have no memory now of the film to add to the brief note, but looking at the cast & crew, it has Valerie Hobson who was always good, here playing an Irish girl, she was in fact born in what is now N.Ireland. The director A.Kimmins was a writer director who is now almost forgotten, but made many watchable films, including writing the screenplay for the first 3 films directed by C.Reed, he is not responsible for the script here, hopefully I have waffled sufficiently to get this up to minimum length.
