wonderful film, innocent and romantic
30 November 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

An excellent cast, with Wilfred Hyde White. It was Ronnie Barker's first film. It also launched the career of Jean Dawnay, hailed as the new Grace Kelly. Frankie Vaughn stars as a hunky fisherman attracted to a society girl. Shot in black and white, with the innocence and charm of the 1950's. It is a real pity films like these are not shown on TV more regularly. The language is dated, a la Brief Encounter, but this adds to the charm. No violence, no sex, no swearing just some catchy songs, a happy ending, and a beautiful cast. "Hurry little fishes, hurry if you can - You will find a welcome, in my frying pan!" Perhaps the film should be remade casting Paris Hilton in the lead role as Anne. It is impossible to find a copy on DVD or video, but it would be great to see films such as these relaunched as a box set - I'm sure there are plenty of this era and genre.
