Half A Sixpence, Arthur Kipps, an orphan apprenticed to a tyrannical owner of a mercantile, has a sudden abrupt change of life when his wealthy grandfather dies and leaves him a pile of money.
Half A Sixpence, I remember seeing this movie a lot when I was little. They used to show on Tv here in NY in the late 60s and early 70s. I think the first time I first saw it was like in 67 or 68 I was like 5 or 6. The music is great most of the numbers are uplifting and Tommy Steel delivers them wonderfully and so does the rest of the cast, especially the the ones with all the dancing like when they sing Money to Burn and Flash Bang Wallop. The one thing I didn’t like about this movie was it had a great storyline that should of been developed stronger. The whole thing about the love between Artie and Ann and how it was almost destroyed because of newfound wealth and the way it changed him and caused a rift between them and also between him and the boys he worked with could have been emphasized a little stronger. Other than that this movie is a gem, a wonderful, romping musical that you can watch with your whole family because there’s no excessive violence, sex or crude humor
