excellent film of the 1970's
8 April 2006 | by alexander_blakeSee all my reviews

A lost gem of a film,with magnificent performances from Bill Maynard and Reginald Marsh.The contrast between the two characters played by these wily old pros could not be greater.Maynard,as an ex fighter pilot is the embodiment of meritocratic decency,a man whose honesty and reliability oozes from every pore.Marsh is his diametric opposite,a latter-day spiv whose war efforts,one supposes,were confined to black marketeering or incarceration in the glass house.They have both since become role models,Maynard as a paragon of virtue to his daughter and her two young friends,while the sleazy Marsh has moulded his equally feckless son into a second-rate replica of himself.A great little film that should be made available on DVD.
