A great nostalgia piece for Brits in their 50's or 60's
IF you were at school in the 1950's then watch this film if you get the opportunity. It's a lovely look at British school life in that era. The music throughout is great too. John Mills and Cecil Parker do a superb job in their respective roles. Wonderful nostalgia pieces like this should be treasured, and hopefully it will be released on DVD in time.
