Worth a watch ...
10 June 2020 | by kevinmulqueenSee all my reviews

Alec Guinness brings a wonderfully light comic touch and an endearing cheerfulness to his starring role. Glynis Johns is quite annoying, and Petula Clark (whom I always knew was a singer) has a small role. This is an old-fashioned comedy - wooden, unsubtle - but worth watching for Alec Guinness.
