Movie Info

In Edwardian Staffordshire, charming rogue Edward "Denry" Machin (Alec Guinness), the son of a washerwoman, believes he must give destiny a hand to rise in the world. Starting early in his youth, Denry maneuvers to get into a top public school. Later, by outwitting his employer, he becomes a rent collector, and eventually mayor. He uses the lovely Countess of Chell (Valerie Hobson) as his patron -- but Denry's ambitions are brought up short by crafty dance instructor Ruth Earp (Glynis Johns).

Audience Reviews for The Promoter

  • Oct 21, 2007
    alec guiness in the most central role i've seen him, playing a man who smartly comes from poverty to riches, dreaming up schemes a day like del boy. glynis johns makes up the totty along with valerie hobson and petula clark but glynis the money grabbing gold-digger is the main piece of eye candy. good scene when the two of them end up in the river together on a cart. nice enough work by ronald neame
