Welcome to Reel Britannia-a very British podcast about very British movies ...with just a hint of professionalism.
Classic comedy from the 50s this week with Kenneth More, Kay Kendall, John Gregson and Dinah Sheridan and a very famous automobile.
In this upbeat British comedy, two friends enter an antique car rally. Alan McKim (John Gregson) drives his beloved 1904 automobile, named Genevieve, while Ambrose Claverhouse (Kenneth More) takes his vintage Spyker car. Alan and Ambrose bring their wives (Dinah Sheridan, Kay Kendall) along for the wild ride from London to Brighton, and the trek soon turns fiercely competitive, each driver devising clever ways to sabotage the other in hopes of winning the race.
“Ambrose only seems to think about two things. That silly old car - and the other thing.”
“What other thing?...Oh...my husband only thinks about the car.”
