| How Could He Resist The Charms Of Jean Kent
This film is virtually unknown.I can never recall it showing on TV in the UK and it is not available on DVD>It is an interesting film with an exceptional cast.However most of the film seems to consist of Richard Attenborough being flogged,tortured or threatened.not surprisingly his most oft used line is "I hate him".Furthermore when offered the ample charms of Jean Kent he resists her and flees back to Joan Greenwood who is afflicted with an awful French accent.There is some very good technicolour camera-work.However it is clear that this film must have got lost in the rush of costume dramas coming out of Gainsborough Studios.It doesn't deserve to be forgotten.
