| Almost saved by Jill Day
Very typical of the sort of bland fare, though distinguished by colour and good production values, that Rank and the rival ABPC were turning out in the mid-Fifties, ALL FOR MARY suffers from a more emaciated script than usual.

Mildly amusing at times, it does provide a good role for Kathleen Harrison, much more assertive than usual as a nanny bossing two grown men with chickenpox at a ski resort, though the scenes tend to drag. David Tomlinson is a sort of upper-class Norman Wisdom, but Nigel Patrick, required to shout and bluster some of the time, is not seen at his best.

Film's main asset is the adorable and scintillating Jill Day, a popular singer of the time, as Mary, apple of the eyes of the two men, and comic foreigner Leo McKern. Beautifully dressed, her one vocal number is the highlight of the show and it is regrettable that the film industry didn't give her more opportunities.
