The Promoter is a sprightly spoof that gives Alec Guinness a role ideally suited to his deadpan comedy talents.

Somewhat typical Horatio Alger story made interesting by a cast of outstanding performers.

Neame and his players inject this with plenty of wit, distracting one from the Horatio Alger cliches.

The principal character in Arnold Bennett's novel The Card... provides a made-to-measure part for Alec Guinness in a capital performance.

Brisk, brassy and keenly observed, Neame's film is a thoroughly enjoyable social satire that will appeal to the blagger in everyone.

It's solid stuff, but too many involved seem to be marking time.

The Promoter, while vastly amusing in spots, is not a first-rate Guinness show.
