The Card
£9.49  

A precocious child, Denry Machin (Alec Guinness - Bridge on the River Kwai, Star Wars) determines as a boy to master his own fate as much as possible. With equal parts cheeck, charm and ambition, over the course of his life he finds many ways to enhance the quality of his life - a challenge he relishes, surmounting social and other barriers with shrewdness, luck and the invaluable gift of making himself liked by everyone from the landed gentry to the lowest washerwomen. With a large bank account and an amiably affectionate personality he soon became known as The Card, capping his achievements by becoming the youngest-ever Mayor of his hometown. But has Denry met his match when it comes to women? There are two in his life- Ruth Earp (Glynis Johns - Mary Poppins, The Sundowners), an attractive and vivacious dancing teacher and quiet, placid little Nellie Cotterill (Petula Clark - Vice Versa, I Know Where Im Going). Which one will he choose?Nominated for an Oscar, this gentle 50s comedy featured charming performances from Alec Guinness as Denry Machin with Glynis Johns and Petula Clark as the two women he loves.
