The Chance of a Lifetime
13 April 2020 | by richardchattenSee all my reviews

If their success rate in matching compatible clients seen in this portmanteau film structured around a marriage bureau is anything to go by it's hardly surprising the two elderly sisters running it are still spinsters!

The whimsical captions in this late Gainsborough production introducing the main characters - and the fact that one of them is played by Guy Middleton - leads one to expect a comedy, but only two of the four episodes are explicitly played for laughs. The picture as a whole (and a memorable cameo by a lonely Alison Leggett) paints a very stark picture indeed of life in postwar austerity London.

An unbilled Albert Lieven is supposedly transformed into a slimy Frenchman by slicked-back hair and the addition of a moustache; while it was presumably that he remembered her from this that later encouraged director Terence Fisher to cast Carol Marsh as Lucy in 'Dracula'.
