Runtime: 20 min
This delightful film won numerous awards. Still relatively unknown to the public, it was introduced in the 1950s to many more viewers on the Sunday morning CBS Television program "Omnibus" (would it were still with us!). Omnibus devotees loved it, and enjoyed several repeats. The small cast is excellent, including the movie debut of outstanding British stage-TV-film character actor Alan Badel, who went on to many choice roles.
Photography is choice. Direction superb, music wonderful! The soundtrack made famous the "Swedish Rhapsody" by Hugo Alfven. Its popularity encouraged Alfven to compose "Swedish Rhapsody No. 2", which never garnered the acceptance of its bigger brother. The plot is deliciously clever. A gem, truly a gem.
