Unambitious but effective supporting picture dealing with race relations in early 60s London. When you've got a virulent racist (Johnny Briggs, or Mike Baldwin as you might better know him) and his sister (Ann Lynn), who is dating a black man, living under the same roof, you know things are not going to end well. Donald Pleasance and Hilda Fenemore play the concerned parents, and most of the running time takes place in their kitchen, where somewhat bizarrely a radio is the means of entertainment - surely in 1961 everyone had a TV?
Even more bizarre is a flirtatious exchange between a black man and white woman near the start of the film:
"Can I help you, lady?"
"Would you like some coffee, coloured boy?"
