One of my adolescent favorites
13 September 2005 | by juanitaSee all my reviews

I probably first saw this film when I was around 12 years old, and after several decades I still remember this as one of those pleasant mannered comedies that occasionally aired on local stations on Sunday afternoons. A nice little British romance from the early 60s. It evoked the same type of fondness in me as the first Gidget film. "Young girl falls for slightly older guy who apparently doesn't even notice her." This is the type if film that is rarely aired these days, if ever. While the plot may seem predictable, the actors and the characters are great. In my opinion the cast alone is a strong recommendation for viewing this gem. While the names Redgrave and Mills are both staples of the British stage and Cinema, Michael Craig was also a heavy hitter in the early 60s. I'd love to have this on DVD.
