Reviews From Critics

Reviews(Top) So often misquoted as "money is the root of all evil", the actual quote is biblical(Timothy 6:10 King James version... "for the love of money is the root of all evil which while some coveted after, they have erred from faith and pierced themselves through many sorrows".The other reviewer has provided a spoiler and described the plot in detail so I won't dwell on that.They obviously enjoyed the film as did I but the plot does have this subliminal biblical theme mentioned above and a rather old fashioned Mills and Boon feel to it but this is the charm of Gainsborough Films.In the role of Jeckie Furnish, Phyllis Calvert gives a polished performance and one can sympathise with her on why she went down the wrong spiritual road.Her ineffective father Brefni Rourke at least is there to advise his daughter on morals.The younger daughter does not need her father's pastoral care so much as she knows what she wants (love and marriage and she succeeds at both).It is Jeckie's childhood friend Joe (John McCallum) who she constantly overlooks in matters of affection as she has subconsciously always taken him for granted.Moral:The truth is often right in your back yard.
