A nostalgic look at London as it was in the 1950's
14 March 2003 | by (New York, U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Filmed in color, this film, which is concerned with the hunt for a baby snatched from its pram in a London street, is replete with well-known British character actors of the 1950's including Joan Sims, Eleanor Summerfield, Joan Hickson, Thora Hird and Marjorie Rhodes. It represents a marvelous look at London and its people as they were in the 1950's and is sure to evoke many memories for those who lived there at that time. Highly recommended.
