Child in the House

Child in the House

Cy Endfield (1956)

U Certificate


Our Score
With her mother in hospital and her father (Stanley Baker) on the run, 11-year-old Elizabeth (Mandy Miller) is sent to live with her sniffy aunt (Phyllis Calvert) and rigid uncle (Eric Portman). Her presence has an unexpected effect on all concerned. A modest British-made drama, co-directed by Cy Endfield (Zulu) and jam-packed with such stalwarts of the acting profession as Dora Bryan, Joan Hickson and Alfie Bass. Good for a tear or two, though Portman and Calvert are rather oddly cast.
