This is a gentle, witty and genuinely funny Ealing comedy which plays out every thread the plot sets up. Directed by Henry (I AM A CAMERA) Cornelius with restraint, the film is character driven. And those characters are filled by another fine example of the seemingly bottomless cache of great British character actors which is an embarrassment of riches for the British nation. Headed, of course, by delightful old Stanley Holloway (MY FAIR LADY, THE LAVENDER HILL MOB and BRIEF ENCOUNTER) the rest of the cast includes Hermione Baddeley (known to U.S> TV audiences as Bea Arthur's maid Mrs. Naugatuck on MAUDE as well as from MARY POPPINS and BRIGHTON ROCK), Raymond Huntley (the stage's first DRACULA as well as appearing in Hammer's THE MUMMY, I'M ALL RIGHT, JACK and BREATHLESS), Margaret Rutherford (veteran of countless Miss Marple movies as well as BLITHE SPIRIT and I'M ALL RIGHT JACK), French-Canadian actor Paul Dupuis, Charles Hawtrey (of countless CARRY ON films as Will Hay vehicles), the seemingly forever-teamed-together Naunton Wayne & Basil Radford (of DEAD OF NIGHT), Jane Hylton (CIRCUS OF HORRORS), John Slater (Powell & Pressburger's A CANTERBURY TALE and WENT THE DAY WELL), Betty Warren (SO LONG AT THE FAIR), Barbara Murray (the 1982 DOCTOR WHO story "BLACK ORCHID") and even an extremely young Sir Michael Hordern (WHISTLE AND I'LL COME TO YOU) as a town official.
