Or not memory at all for the viewer...

I saw it only a few minutes ago and almost forgot it...I ain't joking. A film from UK, written by John Gilling, I remember this, OK, but that's all. What the hell is going with me?

A British movie from the late forties as I usually avoid at all costs. But I tried with this one, just too see. I remember this too, I am so glad. That means that I will not become like Rita Hayworth in a close future...Alzheimer disease. See what I mean?..

But I don't remember the story of this movie. Oh yes, it was talkative, boring, boring...And so naive...

Sorry folks, that's all I can remember. But maybe it is a fantastic movie...Who knows...

Well, enough joke. A forgettable feature, so common, nothing special. Only for rare stuff seekers only. Fanatic ones like me.
