By way of explanation....

In 1915 C.J.Dennis published a collection of poems telling the story of "The Sentimental Bloke". The poems are spoken by the Bloke himself, telling of his meeting with the girl who wins his heart, his courtship and marriage.

This black and white movie of the silent era captures the spirit of the poetry exactly. Near the beginning are the memorable words-

"The World 'as got me snouted, jist a treat! Cruel Forchin's dirty left 'as smote me soul, And all them Joys o' Life I 'eld so sweet Is up tha pole!

We soon have our Hero proclaiming-

'Er name's Doreen! Well, spare me bloomin' days! You could've knocked me down wiv 'alf a brick!

My only negative comment about this movie is that the written dialogue is not always easy to understand. It would be good to have the words dubbed.
