Wartime propaganda film
31 January 2016 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This film was shown today at the BFI Southbank in the presence of one of its stars,Peggy Cummins.She told us that this was an important stepping stone in her career,since as a result of her performance she was offered a contract at 20th Century Fox were she stayed for 5 years.She plays the younger sister of Barbara Mullen who have inherited a manor and farm but no money to run it.The Americans come in as they are planning to build a base on the surrounding area and take over the manor.Through rumours I'll will is generated particularly by a dispossessed farmer.However Barbara Mullen clears the air and becomes engaged to an American officer.Basically this film was clearly designed to dispelling the ill will generated by the arrival of American troops.Prints were found at the Cinema Museum and Paramount archive.An excellent 70 minute digital print has been made.
