Certificate U

Petula Clark gives one of her finest performances as a stage star who seduces a shy, stuffy school teacher, impeccably played by Peter O’Toole (who masters Rex Harrison-style speak-singing). Set in pre-WWII English suburbia – with glorious detours to Naples and the Amalfi coast – Leslie Bricusse’s musical, based on the classic James Hilton novel, is a beautiful picture postcard of a more genteel time.
