| rather charming, a nicely made film
Once you accept the premise, that an angel needs to pawn a harp in order to fund her good works on Earth, this film trundles along nicely. The cast performs commendably, with Alfie Bass and Jerry Desmonde adding their talents to the mix.

Diane Cilento positively 'glows angelically' on screen, in no small measure because of Arthur Grant (of Hammer Film fame, whose credits include 'Quatermass and the Pit') being in charge of the cinematography.

Every scene is beautifully lit in it's own way; it is a pleasure to see a nicely crafted film like this. I daresay the budget wasn't huge, but they made a really nice job of it. Many of the shots (both indoors and out) offer glimpses into how things would have looked at the time, making the film's look very much of its period. The story on the other hand is somewhat more timeless.

I have been fortunate enough to see this film on the 'Talking Pictures' UK freeview channel. The print used appears to be unrestored, but this did not mar my enjoyment of the film. Indeed the only real complaint I would make is that the sound and the film image were not synchronised properly when the film was broadcast.

Well worth watching.
