The Card

Film, Comedy
Complacent class-based British comedy, adapted by Eric Ambler from one of Arnold Bennett's Potteries-set novels, charting Guinness' rags-to-riches rise to provincial power with no hint of the sourness underlying the later, ostensibly similar, Room at the Top, and even less of the prickly probing of the social texture sustaining a Guinness comedy like The Man in the White Suit.
