Only for the kind of person who reads Barbara Cartland .
10 November 2005 | by jemkatSee all my reviews

In this 1954 potboiler set designer Carl introduces his sculptor friend Michael Donovan to the girl he wants to marry, ballerina Eve Malone. Any astute viewer of this kind of tripe can work out the rest of the plot from there. Production values are typical of the kind of thing Kenilworth churned out at this time, and although you would never call this the most charismatic cast ever assembled, for the most part they deal acceptably with a script which wouldn't inspire more than a mechanical response. Griffith Jones in the romantic lead puts his role across with all the panache of an accountant giving an end-of-year financial report.
