The rundown British community of Islington is visited by a heavenly angel (Diane Cilento), sent down on a do-good mission. Her principal assignment is to soften the heart of a soulless pawnbroker (Felix Aylmer), and to that end appears in human form to do what the title says she does. During her brief earthly sojourn, Cilento finds time to salvage several other lost sheep, among them such reassuring British character players as Alfie Bass and David Kossoff. The unimportant fantasy was the first film assignment for Diane Cilento, whose career would later briefly be eclipsed by that of her then-husband Sean Connery. It's not likely we would have remembered Cilento at all had she stuck to such disposable fare as The Angel Who Pawned Her Harp.
