picture of a vanished age
22 January 2005 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

At the time this film was made it was the custom for whole towns to shut down their factories for one week in the summer so that the staff could go on holiday,unpaid,to Blackpool or Scarborough and other popular seaside towns.This film centres around the activities of a young couple and its effect on their respective families.Despitebeing directed by Victor Saville there is very little that is cinematic about this film.It feels like it is merely a filmed stage play.It is interesting to see a middle aged Sybil Thorndike with a leading role.Her film career was very sporadic.Edmund Gwenn is his usual bluff Northern type.The main interest is in a historic sense.Seeing a period and attitudes which seem centuries ago not a mere 74 years
