Carol Ann MacKay is a popular nurse at a retirement home, and spends her free time with her hunky athletic husband Wayne MacKay, who would do anything for her, including cleaning up the messes her ideas get them in. When legendary bank robber Henry Manning, who had a major stroke in prison, is placed in the home and supposedly having lost all control over his body, she notices he must be in far better condition then he lets appear. Soon Carol gets his confidence and the two start planning how they three can commit another robbery on an armored money transport.

Part of me hoped that this poorly acted, poorly shot film would get better or that there would be some funny moments but I was proved wrong. The film had no character and no imagination with the jokes seeming dated and unfunny. Not a great film at all.

May C (es) wrote: Watched the latter half some time ago and keeps lingering me how the story starts. I like the tension, the unexpected twist, the subtle interaction between 2 leads. I love the awkwardness. Things can turn out that way, right? Reminds me of the "The Glass Menagerie". Interesting.
Ken T (fr) wrote: An adaptation of a Noel Coward play about how a middle class family lived between the two world wars - 1919 to 1939. Just after WWI, veteran Frank Gibbons (Robert Newton) and wife Ethel (Celia Johnson) have purchased a London home. Frank is immediately excited to find out that Bob Mitchell, a war buddy, lives next door and the two spend many a night binge drinking. Frank and Ethel have three children - Queenie, Reg and Vi who will all choose varying ways of life occasionally to the dismay of their very dutiful and rather straight-arrow approach of their parents. The story, from today's standards seems rather akin to a sitcom with the children going through different phases and learning a moral, the father drinking and the mother the voice of reason. I did find the film to be at times dull and found it a little difficult to get into the characters. But Lean does inject some wonderful touches like a muted color scheme creating a rather drab atmosphere of London at the time and a masterful segment where the frame is left empty for a rather extensive period of time that masterfully creates the required atmosphere for that scene. The acting, as expected in all Lean films, is wonderful. Though This Happy Breed is certainly not as good as say Brief Encounter, it still is well worth seeing.
