| Another trip down memory lane for me
I was 15 when this movie was released in 1961 being 70 now.I can remember Ruth Dunning playing Mrs Grove in "The Grove family" which ran from 1954-57.Gladys Henson was often paired as the wife of Jack Warner especially in "The Blue Lamp" (1950) which kick started the long running "Dixon of Dock Green" on BBC t.v. in the 1950s.She also appeared in "A Night to Remember" (1958)about "The Titanic" playing the nervous woman reluctant to enter one of the all too few lifeboats.Even in the 1950s I can remember Nora Nicholson playing rather daffy old women in t.v dramas on the BBC.The character of George was played by an actor who specialised in playing criminals - you only had to see his face and I can remember seeing him playing on t.v. the convict Magwich in Dickens "Great Expectations.How I miss those British B features at the cinema.My local cinema showed a cartoon,Pathe News, a 'B' feature followed by the main film.Good value for your 1/6 (one & sixpence)!My rating was 6/10.
