What are people saying?

  • Edna Sweetlove's rating of the film Serious Charge

    Edna writes: Anthony Quayle could rival James Mason for wooden acting any day and he shows it from frame #1. Cliff Richard's film singing debut is utterly laughable, as indeed is his entire career - but he was very pretty in those early days, unlike now when he looks like a wrinkled prune. Interesting shots of 50s cars enliven the screenplay. Two stars (I am being generous mainly because Andrew Ray was a cutie).
