The Elopement
15 February 2020 | by richardchattenSee all my reviews

Initially set in a small fictitious market town called Mellingham, this starts off as a frightfully innocent tale of puppy love that fortunately displays the wit of scriptwriter Michael Pertwee (who has a brief bit as a cynical reporter) and the directorial adroitness of Mario Zampi when they set off for Gretna Green on a sort of rural remake of 'It Happened One Night' enhanced by rich Technicolor photography by Erwin Hillier and the usual assortment of familiar faces in fleeting cameos.
