All for Mary

All for Mary

Wendy Toye (1955)

U Certificate


Our Score
In this sadly unfunny comedy, Nigel Patrick and David Tomlinson are rival suitors for the hand of Jill Day, but they contract chickenpox and are forced into quarantine in a Swiss chalet at the mercy of ageing nanny Kathleen Harrison. The invalids become infants as the grown men are brought under control by a dominant female. Sadly, director Wendy Toye takes the joke no further so all we get is a feeble production that only weakly echoes its successful West End origins.
