Don't miss Mary!
5 October 2007 | by See all my reviews

An amusing charade with charismatic Kathleen Harrison in her element as the slightly built but overbearing nanny who bosses and cajoles two grown men as if they were little boys. David Tomlinson is also well cast as the milder of the "boys", although Nigel Patrick often manages to steal scenes with some splendid bits of riotous "business".

Nonetheless, despite all the fine efforts of this trio of laugh-makers, it's the exceedingly lovely Jill Day who really makes "Mary" a memorable experience. Aided by a stunning wardrobe, Miss Day makes her character so attractive, we can overlook the mistimed efforts of other players (particularly Leo McKern) and the occasional heavy-handed direction.

Alas, this is the second of only two movie appearances by the lustrous Jill. She was well-known as a singer at the time and fortunately our highly personable heroine is handed an opportunity to vocalize in "All For Mary" too. True, it's a somewhat inconsequential number, but who's listening?

Producer/screenwriter Paul Soskin has commendably gone to some expense to bring this most agreeable farce to the screen, using not only nice color photography but real Swiss locations as well.
