Added 12/30/11.
Did not read book. Streamed (via Netflix) the movie adaptation.
It's a British comedy with Alec Guinness and Glynis Johns. It was fun to watch. Alec Guinness was so young then.

"A charming and ambitious young man finds many ways to raise himself through the ranks in business and social standing- some honest, some not quite so. If he can just manage to avoid a certain very predatory woman."

Petula Clark was also in "The Card". She was younger then and looks very different from the Petula Clark we knew when she was a pop singer. I didn't recognize her in the movie.

NOTE: The film, "The Card" is aka "The Promoter".

Samantha Oh that's a shame you didn't read the book it is very good highly recommend it to you. But I haven't seen the film but will do now when I get the opportunity.


Samantha Forgot to say you can read it free on Amazon as you can most Arnold Bennett books as they are out of copyright.
