That extra something,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Card  [DVD] (DVD)
This is a well made, unfussily directed, gentle comedy with that extra something that means that the very good cast gels right from the beginning. Alec Guinness and Glynis Johns share a real chemistry in their joint scenes, but every character is 'right'. The story is as relevant today as it was when Arnold Bennett wrote it, or when Ronald Neame filmed it; everyone will know people like these. Particularly interesting are the many glimpses of Stoke and Llandudno as they were sixty years ago or more. The film also contains Petula Clark's first screen kiss.
