Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Set in 1962 Wales, Experience Preferred...But Not Essential is the story of a hotel waitress named Annie (Elizabeth Edmonds). In the words of the famous song, Annie's been looking for love in all the wrong places. This time around, she hopes to find lasting happiness in the arms of the hotel cook. Screenwriter June Roberts' "ear" for period dialogue and attitudes is unerring; indeed, it is difficult to believe that the film was actually made 20 years after the on-screen events take place. Part of a series of films about young people produced for British television, Experience Preferred...But Not Essential has gained its largest American following thanks to Public TV.
