Amazing figures for SPRING IN PARK LANE, a deeply ordinary Anna Neagle vehicle. I'm sure I've seen it on TV but I can remember absolutely nothing about it.

You've never seen THE SOUND OF MUSIC? You lucky, lucky man.

You are very lucky to have not seen The Sound of Music. Having said that, I reckon I'm lucky as I've not seen Gone With The Wind!
