Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This ironic little British character study stars Stuart Rome as a "most likely to succeed" type. Rome has been invited to give a speech to his old classmates about self-sufficiency and optimism in the face of worldwide depression. Unfortunately, to finance his trip to London, the impoverished Rome must hock everything he owns. The hero's regaining of his own self-respect is the core of this understated drama. Reunion wasn't seen in the US until the early 1950s, when hungry-for-product TV stations were running every British picture they could get their hands on.
