Product Description

Product Description

John Baxter directs this English drama adapted from Walter Greenwood's novel. The film chronicles life during the interwar years in the Salford slums at the height of the Great Depression as seen through the eyes of Lancashire mill girl Sally Hardcastle (Deborah Kerr), whose slide into poverty drives her to desperate measures. Forced to bestow favours upon the local bookie, she incurs the wrath of her bullying father and the censure of her gossiping neighbours.

(Should be 4 star stuff, because of DVD quality, but I'm a Deborah Kerr fan...) excellent film, really realistic and gritty about hard life in working class England during great depression, DVD transfer is not exceptional even taking into account age of the movie, but nothing you can't live with. Sound is mono, but easily understandable.

Recommended not only because of a wonderful Deborah Kerr, cast is excellent, direction is tight and story is sad but interesting.

Its a film set in the 1930s about unemployment and poverty with all the ups and downs of no money,its really eye opening as to what people went through in those days and its very similar to now,it is worth watching I would recommend to anyone..

Just sit down relax and watch this old classic.Fantastic drama i think the early Coronation Street actors must have studied the same technique. Good down to earth drama.Go for it.

A lovely old film pre-dating aspects of early Coronation Street but more earthy. A disappeared landscape now. Well worth viewing.
