| Kipp's a disappointment
I have been waiting for this film for many years. My memory of it seems to have misled me. Having read the book first, in my teens, I thought it a good theme, as I could identify with it, working in a department store in the sixties at the time! However on seeing it on film4 29/03/08, it depressed me with it's dated and artificial style of acting and its greyness. I feel the tommy Steele version of 'half a sixpence' to be a much better vehicle for the story. A related story made into a film called 'the history of Mr Polly' with john mills was in my opinion a far better and more humorous film from the pen of Hg wells, made a few years later.
