While on the surface it's a comic fable with a sense of humor as dry as a cracker, the movie possesses a sharp edge that rises like a shark fin above the natty British drollery. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- Clever Ealing comedy, though perhaps not as great as its legend.

The picture is very enjoyable. Its observation of people, its carefully sustained tempo, its apt incidental thrusts. have real individuality and distinction. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- Alec Guinness' sharp bird nose and watery eyes helped him play characters who were misfits on the margins of society. He made for a kindly but stubborn rebel in the Ealing comedies. Full Review

Rating: 4/4 -- That Stratton proves so unable to resist his hubris surely provides the film with a cautionary subtext, but this is beautifully complicated by an ending that denies the possibility of rehabilitation. Full Review
