The Crowded Day

1954

John Guillermin
Director
Adelphi Films
production Company

Day in the life of an Oxford Street department store.

Soapish look at the lives and loves of assorted store personnel with John Gregson reprising his Genevieve characterization somewhat. Interesting time capsule of the Bourne and Hollingsworth store which did indeed have staff dormitories.
