Quiet Weekend 1946

This film was on Talking Pictures this Sunday afternoon – I have seen it before but it is still enjoyable in a slightly old fashioned way, which to me makes it all the more appealing.

Derek Farr with Barbara White ABOVE


Barbara White had been in the film The Voice Within (1945), and whilst on the set she had met  Kieron Moore , who became her husband and to who she was married for 59 years.


They were married in 1947.    She is a beautiful girl and to me she was the highlight of this film.

She did play opposite him again in a better received film ‘Mine Own Executioner’ in 1947  

Quiet Weekend 1946 2

The Royd family go down from town for a relaxing weekend in the their cottage in the country.

Denys ( Derek Farr ) brings with him his girlfriend Rowena, but sparks fly between the city girl and Denys’s young cousin, Miranda played by the lovely Barbara White.

The menfolk meanwhile engage in a spot of salmon poaching.

Quiet a light comedy with lots of dialogue but very entertaining – and relaxing.

Really enjoyed it
