Nostalgic film from a more safer world than today
17 October 2001 | by kbruce00See all my reviews

This is a typically safe 50s film from a more safer world than we have today.It is unashamedly nostalgic as Miss Doves life is recalled in flashbacks. However I can,t help feeling that it is a 2nd hand Goodbye Mr Chips which was magnificently portrayed by Robert Donat. It even steals the punchline from the end of Mr chips about never having had children. Having said that it is comfortable Sunday afternoon viewing with a few strong moments.
