Misinformation in one review
21 March 2011 | by See all my reviews

Reviewer Jennifer Nicol from Vancouver states that Julie is played by Leslie Dunlop who later appeared in May to December. This is incorrect. Julie is played by Leslie Dudley, a completely different person, whose career did not continue much past this film.

This part could have been served better by a more talented and engaging child actress, but the film has a lot more to carry it through to a satisfying conclusion.

The stock footage of the coronation events is very interesting. I saw this coronation on television as a child and have always remembered it.

The children's escapades are very innocent and this film could not be made today, as we don't approve of adults giving children rides in cars (for instance) without even asking where their parents are!

This is a charming film of a bygone time and could be enjoyed by everyone. That it is filmed in colour is a bonus, as the English countryside is lovely.
