29, Acacia Avenue

Henry Cass (1945)

A Certificate


Our Score
The film version of the West End success about a couple who return home unexpectedly after a holiday and surprise their teenage offspring fails to fully disguise its theatrical origins. It nevertheless makes for pleasant period entertainment, with particularly likeable performances from British veterans Gordon Harker and Betty Balfour as the parents. Today, though, the problems encountered seem relatively trivial, but it's nice to see stars like Jimmy Hanley and Dinah Sheridan (once husband and wife) in their youth. Unusually, this seemingly quintessential English piece was actually released in the US as The Facts of Love. Wonder what the Americans made of the accents?
