Storyline

A farmer who has the reputation of drinking most of his money away, lives on farm which is in a poor state of repair. A pretty young girl, Dulcima, takes pity on him and decides to help him by cleaning the place. She is happy to be earning money, and he is happy because she is there. Despite being a miserable old bastard, he finds himself falling for Dulcima, and asks her to move in with him, to save her the walk from her home to his farm every day. She does, and is happy with her work. She however falls for a gamekeeper from the nearby estate, and they start to meet in secret because of the farmer's increasing jealousy. One day while he is at the market she discovers a whole load of money hidden in an upstairs room, and this changes the relationship between the farmer and Dulcima. She becomes more friendly towards the farmer, now knowing of his wealth, and the farmer decides that he wants her for his bride. Dulcima however still sees the gamekeeper, and eventually the farmer finds ... Written by Richard Jeffreys <rjeffrey@mlsma.mlm.att.com>

How times have changed
30 November 2008 | by (Gloucestershire, England) – See all my reviews

This film title was long forgotten until i recently spent time reminiscing with an old school friend, we had both attended Minchinhampton school in the late 60's and had watched in awe as the film crews and stars strutted their stuff, in particular John Mills, later to become Sir John Mills, I remember well, the morning i was walking to school and had to stop and wait until a scene had been shot at the rear of the crown inn, as he passed me the great man patted me on the head.

I have recently managed to find a copy on DVD, watching it i was catapulted back to a time of innocent childhood, Mills's character, Parker, could of been based on one of many eccentrics that have lived in and around the Stroud Valleys.

The country side has not changed a great deal but the peacefulness has, watching you realise the impact the motor car has had on the area, in particular to Minchinhampton, i remember the village streets before they became clogged with cars, a time when nearly everyone travelled ON the green Bristol omnibus.

Times change i know, but at least with gorgeous films like this the memories live on.
