I actually enjoyed the film, especially the whole raft of stars - from Leslie Phillips (a favourite of mine), doing his very best to create a convincing Yorkshire accent, to the lovely Diana Dors.
John Gregson puts in a fine performance as a young man who has inherited a lot of money and whose dead father still has a considerable influence on his life.
At first, I thought the story would be predictable; it had every indication of being similar(ish) to "The Big Money". However, I was pleased to find that it wasn't.
I found Diana's acting to be first rate and well worth watching; her character was superb, without being over the top.
Of course, the film is "dated". However, to a collector (such as I), this is the charm. I enjoyed the whole film and am glad I bought a copy.
The setting was just right I cant fault this film.
The quality of the transfer to DVD was very good. The only thing I find disappointing with a lot of the British films that have been released on to DVD is that they rarely if ever use the original artwork on the cover.
This is a great film full of nostalgia and a good insight into what life was like in the 1950's, it was also a refreshing change to watch a film that wasn't full of bad language and sex scenes. Good old fashioned humour!
Chayley has inherited his father's business in the rag trade but in true Yorkshire way still counts every penny. A trip to London with friends for the Rugby League Cup final ends with Chayley becoming besotted with the beautiful Ruth (Diana Dors), despite the rising bill!!. When Chaley returns to Yorkshire, and becomes a local councillor, he invites Ruth to open a kiddies playground with hilarious consequences.
These old films make great sunday afternoon viewing. Well worth a look.
