Interesting Location!
19 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

I've seen this film only once it was show on BBC2 one afternoon in the late 1990's. It's a story of an american soldier who inherits the lordship to an english village, Why it interested me is that the village in question is actually Turville in Buckinghamshire. Turville's usually linked to another film "Went the day well" but this film shows more shots of the village. The village pub "The Bull and Butcher" is shown in detail both inside and out. In the film the main bar is actually shown as the village shop, whether this was the case in 1955 or it was purely for film i am unsure. The film itself is quite boring and i would'nt recommend it for its artistic quality.
