So enjoyable. Capitalism, but retains some community spirit

Guinness deceives his way up the british social chain. Has it's moments but by and large a disappointing british comedy - Glynis Johns was a tad annoying with that dreary drippy voice of hers

The 2nd half of Dad's b'day viewing... Thoroughly entertaining, charming story with some slapstick thrown in...although more of the latter would have been fun in the second half. Simple, old fashioned fun...

Denry (Alec Guinness) is a washerwoman's son, who has ideas above his station, and is prepared to make them come to fruition by almost any means. Guinness' acting is a delight in this film.

Alec Guinness is a rags to riches character. What this film if you can and enjoy.

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

Alec Guinness in a very watchable watchable tale back in the days when films lasted less that 90 mins.

This is one of those movies which Alec Guinness pulls up from a light-hearted enjoyable and well directed story to one that anyone should make an effort to see if they have the chance.
