New Left Review I/8, March-April 1961

Alan Lovell

Film Chronicle

wilfred fienburgh’s story of a Labour M.P. No Love for Johnnie is a bad novel. The film that the Rank Organisation have made from the book is even worse. Ralph Thomas has directed No Love for Johhnie with absolutely no imagination or feeling (not that one would expect these qualities in the director of the Doctor in the House series). The film is so bad that I do not think anybody will be affected by it. Yet I think it is worth writing about because it is so revealing of British attitudes to politics.
