strictly for the birds
30 November 2015 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

It looks as if the producers of this film were borrowing liberally from Ealing films.The two that come to mind being Passport to Pimlico and The Titfield Thunderbolt.However those two films chose the comic route and are classics,this chose the dramatic route and is forgotten.Lots of reliable character actors .Muriel Pavlow and Johnn Gregson doing the sort of roles that were their forte in the fifties.Kieran Moore jutting his jaw out as far as it will go.Some fine Eastman colour cinematography,although the constant shots of aircraft and flocks of birds is strictly for the enthusiast.Not a memorable film or an awful one either.
