Such proposals as slum clearance, public housing, educational facilities for the poor, are all wise and worthy measures and consequently will be opposed vigorously. The British are a proud and independent people, ma'am, and will not yield to improvement without a stout struggle.

I've been looking for this film for so many years - only to see the IMDb tells me there is no copy on VHS or DVD.
Does anyone out there have a version I could get a copy of?? I remember Irene Dunne and Alec Guiness as being such wonderful actors. I especially enjoyed Miss Dunne in the earlier version of "Showboat." Who knew she could sing so well. And Sir Alec, of course, did everything well - from "The Man in the White Suit" up to "Star Wars." I'm looking forward to re-watching "Kiind Hearts and Coronets" soon, since it's been years since I've had that pleasure.
I have a vague memory of having read "The Mudlark" when I was much younger. But I've never seen the movie version with two of my favorite actors.
