my mission to watch old British films sometimes disappoints.
21 October 2018 | by ib011f9545iSee all my reviews

I love watching old films,especially old British films.they show our cities as they were and it is fun to see star actors in their early years. Sometimes the films are good and it is great to find an undiscovered classic.

But I hate to agree with the only other review here of this film. It is interesting in locations and actors but is not great as a film. This is a Liverpool set kitchen sink sort of drama. I give no plot spoilers but it is fairly predictable.

The cast is interesting,Frankie Vaughan is the star,he is handsome but his musical numbers feel dated . Carole Lesley is the female lead,she is beautiful but I don't recall seeing her in anything else. It is Liverpool set but don't expect strong regional accents in 1957.
