The Romantic Age, with Petula Clark

CopsTHE ROMANTIC AGE (1949), black & white Althought it comes from the French novel « Lycée de jeunes filles » this movie doesn't seem to exist with French subtitles ! A very pleaseant comedy with young Petula Clark as « Julie », daughter of a middle-aged teacher who will have an affair with a French girl, Arlette Tessereau, one of the students. Things turn tragic after a trip to Paris. Very « osé » for 1949, this story of a love affair between a married man and a young girl ! Maybe that explains why the movie seems not to have been released in France !

Made in Heaven - Situation Romantic Comedy

Petula Clark in Made in HeavenMADE IN HEAVEN (1952), Technicolor Red-haired Petula shares the top of the bill with David Tomlinson. Typically British comedy ! And typically British quiet family.... until a new girl arrives in the movie, the new housemaid : German brunette actress Sonja Ziemann.

The Runaway Bus - Comedy Crime Adventure

Petula Clark and Belinda LeeTHE RUNAWAY BUS (1954) black & white A wonderful « fake » gangster movie ! If we say that Margareth Rutherford is top of the bill with Petula Clark, you'll know that it will be a good funny movie. Let's add that the main actor is... THE FOG ! « All passengers to... »... To anywhere will not go where they want ! They had to take a plane ; instead, they take a... bus, and get lost anyway ! Dear old Rutherford is great, as ever. And Petula too !
