Storyline

An unmarried nightclub singer, Vivanne Bruce, is thrown on her own when her lover, Jerry Nolan, is arrested for murder. Searching for a place to live, she eventually finds a room in a boarding-house ran by "Nellie" Alistair, a ruthless woman who provides room-and-board for unmarried mothers with an ulterior motive...selling children for adoption. Vivanne resents having to share a room with Chris Ralston, who arrives with her young son, but they become friends when Chris intervenes on Vivanne's behalf in an argument with another boarder. Vivanne is caring for Chris' child, and, when it becomes ill, she turns to "Nellie" for help but is refused. The baby dies and Vivanne fights with "Nellie", who pushes her down a flight of stairs. A doctor and a nurse are called and Vivanne delivers a daughter. The police are notified by the nurse when the nature of the boarding house is ascertained, and "Nellie" is arrested. Vivanne gives her new-born baby to Chris to "replace" her own because she ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Shock !Horror!Harvey Sings!
19 February 2014 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This film apparently has the distinction of being the first film to get the new X certificate.Was it I wondered the sight of a dubbed Laurence Harvey singing?The film betrays its stage origins and there is very little attempt to open out the film.It has a rather pre war feel about it.The music is certainly old fashioned as are some of the performances.Was illegitimacy such a problem in 1952.Bear in mind the effects of the war.Difficult to believe that having a baby out of wedlock was so stigmatised in those days.Dora Bryan stands out with her bright performance ,which is exactly what this grim film needed.Frieda Jackson gives it her all as the Landlady/baby farmer.Not likely to find much of an audience today,Indeed I think that this has not been shown here on TV.
