The cast and crew were some of the best British movies had to offer. This moving tale of what it was like in England in and just after the war years. I really enjoyed Thora Herd as the ever reliable Char lady, chatting all the time with nothing to say she was perfect. Cecil Parker who was head over heels in love with delightful Ursula Jeans but did not have the nerve to tell her till 2/3rds through the film, very English. The trivia was exactly right. A real who's who in the British film industry. Roy Baker directing, Vetchinsky art direction and Hillier a master of black and white photography. Miur Mathieson, music Seeing this 1948 movie for the 1st time in 2004, I was prepared to be disappointed but was not.
