Member George Strimmel introduces this 1953 upbeat British comedy. Directed by Henry Cornelius and starring Dinah Sheridan, John Gregson, Kay Kendall and Kenneth More.
Every year, barrister Alan McKim (John Gregson) and wife Wendy (Dinah Sheridan) compete against Alan’s friend (and Wendy’s former beau), Ambrose Claverhouse (Kenneth More), in the London to Brighton vintage car race. This time round, however, Alan’s 1904 roadster, ‘Genevieve’, breaks down on route. Angered by Ambrose’s jokes at the expense of his beloved car, Alan bets his rival that he can beat him on the return journey to London – and the race is on! Larry Adler’s harmonica score was nominated for an Oscar.
