wonderful movie
23 January 2004 | by (banora point Australia) – See all my reviews

This film should be repeated on Tv on all stations and all ovet the english speaking world.I saw this movie when I lived in England and I dont ever recall it being shown over here in Australia.It has always stuck in my mind and I know that others feel the same.I was in conversation in Sydney only last week with English people and this film starring Patricia Hayes came into the conversation.I would be very interested to know if it was ever released on video or DVD.
