| Yes I was right Ronald Adam was an RAF Fighter Controller during WW11
I saw a documentary a few years ago about The Battle of Britain featuring RAF fighters and the control room whose personnel guided pilots to intercept German raiders.In this film was an officer who looked strangely familiar and it was not until I saw "Hindle Wakes" 1952 that I recognised actor Ronald Adam.In films he was usually cast as authority figures in the armed services, or a director of a hospital, as in "Green for Danger" (1946).It was not until I read the iMDB biography that it confirmed it was the same person who despite acting, writing plays. theatre management , was actually in both the RAF and its earlier incarnation the Royal Flying Corps.This film from 1952 depicts the danger for "nice girls" in spending a night with a man friend when it seemed they were then honour bound to marry the man.They did have condoms then but the censor would never have passed such a script.The producer had to suggest intimacy between the sexes showing in one scene the couple booking a hotel room with the next scene bright and early next morning.How quaint but society has moved on in the last 66 years!I spotted a young comedienne Rita Webb playing a landlady a foil for Spike Milligan in his comic routines, Bill Travers from "Born Free" and from an earlier generation Mary Clare who played "The Baroness" in Hitchcock's acclaimed "The Lady Vanishes" (1938).This was my first viewing of this film which I saw on "Talking Pictures" channel 81 and I awarded it 6/10.
