Primula Rollo's only film. She was married to David Niven and had two children. She died aged 28 after falling during a game of Hide n Seek at Tyrone Powers house. Mistaking a cellar entrance for a closet. David was heartbroken for many years to come. Tragic. This movie is available on movie streaming sites. See more »

A tedious, humorless film, interspersed awkwardly with random war-time propaganda.
A posh girl falls in/out/in love with the butler, depending on his social ranking, as he moves upwards through the social classes via promotion in military rank. The audience has to suffer through an hour of "will they, won't they". You will find yourself hoping the characters will be blitzed just to put a stop to their terrible dialogue and hopeless acting.
There are many small side plots that are not resolved satisfactorily, such as an interpreters struggle with citizenship papers. random war propaganda is inserted at various points such as the scene where the aunt has a gas-mask fitting, and an awkward montage of the main character doing some very unrealistic military training.
