Terence de Marney,
Cheaply made version of play with interesting newcomers
This is the film version of a play,with most of the action taking place in the front room of the family house.William Sylvester returns as an army veteran who was the former lover of the daughter of the family.However she is now married to a rather unsympathetic character who is more interested in speaking at strike meetings than taking his wife dancing.There is a courting couple played by a very young Brian Rix and a young Prunella Scales.A youthful Joan Simms also makes an appearance.There is a copious use of stock footage for exteriors.Also at the political meetings you see the platform speakers but not those in the hall.Despite these limitations it is entertaining maybe because it took the path that will be taken by television soap operas.
