Mediocre
13 April 2018 | by See all my reviews

As has been stated by one of the other reviewers there is sometimes more pleasure at watching familiar actors and Britain in the fifties than anything in this film.That is definitely the case here.Clearly a minimal budget and the incorporation of all the usual cliches contributes to this particularly the climax.I have Diane Cilentos autobiography to dad and it runs to a massive 528 pages
