No Trees in the Street


Time Out says

Released at a time when kitchen sink drama was all the rage, this is an unremarkable 'we had it tough' chronicle from another age (Ted Willis adapted his own play), set in the backstreets of 1938 London. Joan Miller's the desperate mum who tries to get sultry daughter Sylvia Syms married off to crooked turf accountant Lom, while young Melvyn Hayes - latterly remembered for his stint on TV's It Ain't Half Hot Mum - tries hard to convince as the ne'er-do-well son.
