| White Knight?
Mervyn Johns has a chance encounter with famous high-power financier Alfred Drayton, who takes a liking to him and eventually his entire family, much to their delight. The financier and his wife, Olive Sloane, assume an almost paternalistic role with the Blake family helping to facilitate the family's escalation in class as Drayton makes a loan to revive Johns' business. However, Johns' business struggles even though he puts heart and soul into it and he realizes that he can't make it and satisfy the family's desires of bigger and better things without moving out on the risk curve. Johns in this role is truly an endearing character that many of us can relate. The direction is excellent as it has the right balance of being a heartwarming tale without losing sight of the seriousness of the reality of what is taking place. The cast is excellent as well. This is storytelling at its best with enough complexity delivered at a reasonable pace to hold your interest. Recommended.
