John Mills' Screen Debut
16 October 2003 | by Single-Black-MaleSee all my reviews

The 24 year old John Mills made his screen debut in this film. He was quite a bland actor in the 30's and became the chosen representative of the English middle classes in the 40's. Watching him in this film was like having a sandwich with no filling in it.
