I thought I'd have been married by now.
Huh! You've not missed much by missing that. Yer marry for love an' find you've let yourself in for a seven day a week job with no pay. An' yer don't find it out 'till it's too late.

A look at life in North West England in the Depression
Love On the Dole gives you an idea on what life was like in the North West in 1930, during the Depression. This is quite a good movie.
It focuses on a family of four where the dad works in a coal mine. The daughter works in a mill and falls in love with a factory worker, but is killed after getting involved in a fight during a demonstration. She then meets someone else and she gets him to give jobs to her dad and brother, who have both been made redundant.
This movie reminds me of early episodes of Coronation Street that I've seen, even though it was made long before that soap was first broadcast (and both long before I was born!).
The cast includes Deborah Kerr and Clifford Evans.
If you like old British movies, this is recommended.
Rating: 3 and a half stars out of 5.
