| Interesting document of the time, but not much else
One would watch this film today more out of historical interest, i.e. as a document of its time, than as a piece of entertainment. It shows the moral standards of the time (and how they were changing) and the way people used to have fun. This was visibly pre-television. One of the depicted ways to have fun features so prominently that I suspect an early form of 'product placement' - the Wintergarden in Blackpool.

Most characters of the film are nauseatingly stereotypical (with a pre WW2 feeling - they seem dated even by 1952 standards), the only exception being the female lead. Sadly though, Lisa Daniely's accent is ridiculously posh for a supposed working class girl.

On the plus side, the film has a more realistic feel than most of its contemporaries. This is a consequence of the real world settings and because the director refused to glamourise anything; clothes, sets, behaviour all appear real - there are also no cop-outs at the end.
