    Remember watching this…Even back then I was thinking ‘Why – WHY is she half naked for most of the film…Its raining like a Biblical flood…everyone else is wearing rain gear…but the female lead is going out in her slip. Yet another ‘gritty’ insult to working class people.. …a hard-working cast of decent actors…but a script that limps, then crawls, then falls over itself trying to be two different stories at once. It’s only ‘good’ because of historic / period / curiosity and the cast.

      Perceptive comment.Glad others can can see the subtle propaganda!…but maybe that’s why these movies are made? Subliminal psyops galore.
