Poor mans Ryans Daughter
14 September 2020 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

What with all the breakers pounding the shore looks like the producers were aiming at a mini epic.This is strictly a children's film with little or no appeal.Interesting to see Donald Pleasance and Arthur English but that's about it.
