Diane Cilento is charm itself as the Angel at large in London's East End in this whimsical Ealing-style comedy which keeps its feet firmly on the ground, spreading chuckles instead of sentiment and providing polished frolics in the process. Felix Aylmer - brilliant as the hard-bitten pawnbroker - Jerry Desmonde, Alfie Bass and a first-rate supporting cast help to put a high gloss on these heavenly capers.
