A fine black and white film of the 1950s
30 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

I found this a totally delightful film. I have seen it several times and still love it.

Apart from my peculiar preference for movies that do not subject the viewer to a plethora of repulsive obscenities and profanities, I found it interesting because of the array of a galaxy of British talent.

Bill Owen, Stanley Holloway, Donald Sinden, Edward Chapman, Hary Fowler, Thora Hird and Brenda DE Banzie.

With such a wealth of talent this could never fail! I note that only to me of a distant, never to be recalled, and infinitely finer England than the multi cultural hell we have to live in these days.
