    It's got some interesting elements such as evocative location shooting in both upper and lower middle class London, and a wonderful performance from a teen actress I've not seen before named June Archer, and the main character's dream of the perfect garden is credibly English, but the big problem I had with this film is the same one I have with most of the movies directed by Philip Leacock...it's just too damn Disneyfied, especially when you compare it to other, more hardcore British "kitchen sink" dramas of the late 50s/early 60s. For some reason (if I had to guess I'd say it was a desire to be "commercial") Leacock cannot get out of the way of his own cuteness. Like a sweet but noxious gas it pervades nearly everything about this film, from the music, which the previous reviewer found "Puckish" but which I found Yuckish, to the kindliness of nearly everyone in the cast, with the glorious and all too brief exception of the hooker mom without the heart of gold (she, at least, would never be in a Disney film!), to the obligatory heart warming ending. Indeed, the movie is so Magic Kingdom-ish in its overall feel that I'm mildly shocked to learn that Leacock, when he went to Hollywood, (as you knew he would), never hooked up with Uncle Walt, who was known to favor sentimental Brits behind the camera. So let's give it a generous B minus, mostly for Ms. Archer whose other work I will soon be checking out.

    What a wonderful movie! Great actors, delightful Puckish music. And it brings back the era when the buildings in London were "of a human scale" as Prince Charles says, and when people did not have cars. Because they were pedestrians, they stayed within a few blocks of home, getting to know one another. I see this so often in classic films, and appreciate a declining culture. One other reviewer found the dvd in the UK, I hope to do the same. 5 stars!

    I happened to see this film on TCM.I was"Smitten"almost immediately!June Archer's(Lovejoy)just grabbed me!I had nothing else to do that day(except for the dreaded housework),so I settled in and watched the complete film.The cast is Excellent(as is the writing,photography,music,and directing).Before it finished,I tried to find out when it would be showing again.It wasn't,so I went to my computer and tracked down a DVD of it from The UK.It arrived in excellent condition and promptly.In addition to this,it had been re-mastered.I cannot more highly recommend this wonderful motion-picture!i

    This is the first time I've seen this film and I must say I was quite impressed with it. It had a unique storyline that kept me interested from beginning to ending. I related to all the characters and their quirkiness. It was a childhood movie and an adult movie. I hope I'll be able to see this movie again soon. It deserves more than one viewing.

  • Very worthwhile English film

    A thoroughly enjoyable and unique film. Gives you a good idea of English life for the times. I hope TCM runs it again in the near future. Would love to know more about the child actors who star in this movie - June Archer and Christopher Hey - they are wonderful. Movie shown in honor of Flora Robson who looks almost the same as she did in movies of the 30's.
