Forgotten British Films…

THE CARD 1952 A really delightful comedy romp with Alec Guinness in the lead character as the son of a washerwoman and set in The English Potteries of 1890. He is a young man who lives on his wits and soon becomes successful as a rent-collector and moneylender. He is popular and revives the local football team by securing them a star player. Later he becomes the Town Mayor and marries a local girl. The film also features Glynis Johns, Valerie Hobson, Petula Clark and Edward Chapman. It was directed by Ronald Neame and based on a novel by Arnold Bennett. An amusing addition to my film library.
