One would watch this movie today more out of historical interest, i.e. as a document of its time, than as a piece of entertainment. It shows the moral standards of the time (and how they were changing) and the method folks used to have fun. This was visibly pre-television. One of the depicted methods to have fun details so prominently that I suspect an early form of 'product placement' - the Wintergarden in Blackpool.Most characters of the movie are nauseatingly stereotypical (with a pre WW2 feeling - they seem dated even by 1952 standards), the only exception being the female lead. Sadly though, Lisa Daniely's accent is ridiculously posh for a supposed working class girl.On the plus side, the movie has a more realistic feel than most of its contemporaries. This is a consequence of the true globe settings and because the director refused to glamourise anything; clothes, sets, behaviour all appear true - there are also no cop-outs at the end.
Extraordinary that there had been two silent and one talkie versions earlier - a testament to the strength of the original play. It raised the, for its time, very controversial question of "The Single Standard": could girls have the same freedoms as men? By 1952 however the boldness and independence of the central character's actions had been largely overtaken by changes in society especially the sexual licence during wartime, consequently it had lost its controversial edge.In this production the drama revolves more round the parents - they were of a generation that still held to Edwardian values even if their offspring didn't. Shorn of its controversial edge but retaining the questions of differences of class or rather money, the part that does remain is a well played modest domestic drama involving the parents. As other reviewer has pointed out the Lancashire mill woman daughter speaks and dresses like a débutante, indistinguishable from her upper class love "rival" - movie companies apparently at the time obliged actresses to lose all trace of regional or working class accents. Tiny wonder the revolution of kitchen sink realism in enjoy and movie occurred within less than 4 years.The earlier versions including the silent ones are rated higher than this probably because they were closer to the time when the storyline would have been controversial and highly charged. However actually is probably the time for a period revival with its theme of a powerful and independently minded working class young girl defying convention and self-interest.
I saw a documentary a several years ago about The War of Britain featuring RAF warriors and the control room whose personnel guided pilots to intercept German raiders.In this movie was an officer who looked strangely familiar and it was not until I saw "Hindle Wakes" 1952 that I recognised actor Ronald Adam.In movies he was usually cast as authority figures in the armed services, or a director of a hospital, as in "Green for Danger" (1946).It was not until I read the iMDB biography that it confirmed it was the same person who despite acting, writing plays. theatre management , was now in both the RAF and its earlier incarnation the Royal Flying Corps.This movie from 1952 depicts the danger for "nice girls" in spending a night with a boy mate when it seemed they were then honour bound to marry the man.They did have condoms then but the censor would never have passed such a script.The producer had to recommend intimacy between the sexes showing in one stage the couple booking a hotel room with the next stage bright and early next morning.How quaint but society has moved on in the last 66 years!I spotted a young comedienne Rita Webb testing a landlady a foil for Spike Milligan in his comic routines, Bill Travers from "Born Free" and from an earlier generation Mary Clare who played "The Baroness" in Hitchcock's acclaimed "The Lady Vanishes" (1938).This was my first viewing of this movie which I saw on "Talking Pictures" channel 81 and I awarded it 6/10.
