Arthur Crabtree - Hindle Wakes (1952)
While on seaside holiday with her girlfriend Mary, a pretty factory worker named Jenny is attracted to Alan...
This film was the fourth and last screen adaptation of the famous Stanley Houghton play of the 1910s, dealing with an independent-minded young woman insisting on her right to enjoy a sexual flirtation regardless of the disapproval of family or society.
While on seaside holiday with her girlfriend Mary, a pretty factory worker named Jenny is attracted to Alan, son of the owner of the mill where she works. When she agrees to spend a week with the young man, Jenny enlists her roommate's help to keep this liaison a secret. The conspiracy backfires when Mary is killed in a freak boating accident, revealing that Jenny was elsewhere. Both sets of parents learn of the liaison, and insist that Alan "do the right thing" by marrying her. The independent Jenny has a surprise for them. Successful and more realistic remake of one of the earliest British talkies, made in 1931 after two previous silent versions.
