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.

Great movie, they don’t make ’em like this anymore

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


Magnificent Entertainment!

 A fabulous musical which I first saw at the age of 11 (back in 1967). In fact I saw this film at least 5 times back then. As a young lad I was also very struck by the appearance of Julia Foster, she was, my first heart throb! (along with Hayley Mills).

This film has great songs, great acting (if a little over the top by Mr Steele, great sets and locations, and great colour. It’s very well directed to boot! A must see for all musical lovers and admirers of Miss Foster!
