uninspiring supporting feature
26 September 2016 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

This is a fairly undistinguished supporting whose only point of interest is he fact the working women were expected to give up their careers when they got married.There was no protection for women against being fired for this reason.Adrienne Corrie is so brilliant that Bill Frasier convinces his board of directors to change their policy.Incidentally at this time Frasier was having a great success on TV as Sergeant Major Smudge in The Army Game.His is the best performance followed by Richard Wattis.Adrienne in an early role is reasonable enough as the ambitious advertising executive.This film is pretty unphotogenic and could have been easily made as a radio or television play.Clearly no expense was incurred in the making of this film.The direction can at best be called perfunctory.This is proof of the fact that the better supporting features were thrillers.No wonder the director retired after this.
