Sonia Holm - what a smasher!
30 January 2016 | by howardmorleySee all my reviews

Yes I drooled over the raven haired Sonia Holm who played Mollie the heroine of this movie who ends up with the man she loves in this movie -handsome Australian actor John McCallum, (real life husband of Googie Withers).Edgar Wallace the mystery writer who wrote "The Calendar" (1948), liked to combine writing with going to the races so this story had an authentic ring of truth to it and held my attention to the end.Raymond Lovell always had difficulty pronouncing his "Rs" which ofter came out as a "W" sound which a good speech therapist could have rectified.If you like gentle British 1940s comedies with a horse racing background, this is an entertaining movie.
