Format: DVD
Good solid wartime British drama

Recently they showed a comparison of Britain from the air and particularly London. The Luftwaffe had filmed it on the very first raid so they had clear photos of what London had looked like before the Germans so kindly rearranged it.

This film opens with the doctor looking at a row of houses that have been cut short and then goes back to 1940 when it was complete. It is easy to forget what the world looked like and these films bring it all back to us. They were a form of propaganda as they reminded people what they were fighting for. In this case a decent way of life through adversity.

We have John Mills the brave Tommy who has been called up to defend his country whilst his wife as to live with his parents. It is very reminiscent of This Happy Breed by Noel Coward. In fact the sister/ sister in law is the same actress ( Alison Leggatt) and she plays the same sort of role. she is the whining troublemaker who is never happy.

She writes to her brother Jim to say that his wife is having an affair with the local spiv Ted Purvis. Stewart Granger is great in these roles of not very savoury characters . Normally he plays upper crust villains or slightly suspect officers. In this he is the archetypal working class spiv who had worked his ticket. Having his way with the women of London whilst are braves boys are fighting the Hun.

The story is good and solid and Jim's mum and dad play solid supporting roles not wanting to get involved and not wanting to believe that their daughter in law is going off the rails. The London background's are also the star of this film. A must for train spotters as Jim is an ex rail worker and the house is next to the railway line and a chase takes place over the railway tracks.

Format: DVD
This is a good tale of romance during World War 2, with a little humour here and there. (Any film with Alistair Sim in it, albeit only for brief appearances, is worth a viewing). It is particularly interesting because of the amount of location filming in immediate post-war London; there is, unsurprisingly given the title, a fair amount of railway coverage including a chase across the lines leading into Waterloo Station. The actors must have had to mind their steps to avoid the live rails!

Unfortunately the print quality is quite poor, with scratches, marks, and fairly poor definition when viewed on a 32" television. Yes it is an old film, but it is a shame a better print couldn't have been obtained.

Still, definitely worth a watch.

Waterloo Road - the other best film of working class England, well written story and no patronising working class chat round the table. Lauder and Giliat team. Also see Millions Like Us.

Worth buying for the Railway scenes you would be hard pushed to get this quality on video from the same era.

Absolutely delighted this film is available on DVD. Made in 1945 and of course in Black and White.This wonderful film features some very early performances from John Mills with Stewart Grainger plus a belting performance as a doctor by Alister Sim. The setting in war time London around the Waterloo Station area really must be classed as an important piece of social history.A good watchable little story as John Mills reacts to gossip and then goes AWOL to find out the truth.Lots of railway scenes so I would say the film could be of interest to railway buffs.
