Genevieve | 1953 | Dinah Sheridan, John Gregson

Henry Cornelius’s very British comedy stars John Gregson and Dinah Sheridan as Alan and Wendy McKim, while Kenneth More and Kay Kendall play Ambrose Cleverhouse and Rosalind Peters. The two men are classic car fanatics and, after completing the London-to-Brighton race, decide to make the return leg a race too. As the men get more competitive and the women more despairing, there are laughs galore, counter-pointed by Larry Adler’s iconic harmonica score.
