Storyline

In post-war London, upper-middle class barrister John Lomax and his wife Barbie decide after several years of constant bickering to divorce. They underestimate the effect of their announcement on their three children, who assume that family friend Bill Ogden is to blame. Uncle Bill may indeed be waiting in the wings, but it's all hardly his fault. Written by Jeremy Perkins <jwp@aber.ac.uk>

Divorce fifties style
30 June 2017 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Valerie Hobson and Philip Friend have been bickering away for some years.He treats her much the way he would treat a hostile witness in court.Norman Woodland is a comforting shoulder who is in love with Hobson.Things come to a head one evening when Friend leaves home.They decide to divorce.They have three children who all take it differently.However the son takes it very badly and eventually shoots Woodland with intent to kill him.As a result Hobson and Friend decide to give their marriage another chance,though it is clear that they are only doing this for the sake of the children.Difficult to know how they are supposed to be happy in an unhappy household.Good performances by all the child actors.Both Mandy Miller and Jeanette Scott would go on to greater things.
