An amusing slice of 'Olde England' from the mid-thirties
An amusing slice of 'Olde England' from the mid-thirties, when country 'gals' could meet interesting 'chaps' on the London-bound train, be offered a position without CV, interview or apparent qualifications for the role, and stay at The Ritz. Plot develops quickly, with Roger Livesey as 'Peter North' vying with Robert Rendel's 'Alfred Blake' for 'Jean Temple', played by attractive Mary Newland. If for nothing else, worth watching by history buffs for LNER trains, some 'Art Deco' door motifs and scenes of central London by night. Previous reviewer has confused the actresses, perhaps by the way IMDb has them listed. Mary Jerrold plays the mother, and it's Mary Newland who's the 'love interest'...6/10
