    THE HALFWAY HOUSE (GB 1944, 95 mins)

    The Halfway House is the name of a Welsh pub run by Mervyn Johns and his daughter (played by his real-life daughter, Glynis Johns). A number of people come to the pub, each with personal problems. They find the atmosphere strange, newspapers and radio broadcasts are a year old, the landlord's daughter casts no shadow. She and her father are ghosts, killed when their home was bombed, as it is again now, when the customer's problems are solved.

    I am sorry that I do not have a copy.

    Hugo seems to have summed it up very well from what I can remember. Not one of the hottest Ealing Films for me even with T.E.B.Clarke in the writting team and the great Guy Middleton as captain Fortescue stealing every scene he's in.

    I could do this one relatively quickly too...VHS to DVD transfer I'm afraid that's all.

    It seems to be getting less rare, whatever 'rare' is supposed to mean.

    Hi,

    I obtained a pretty ropey VCD copy of this film a few years back. I wonder if anybody could provide me with a better copy. I shall, of course, be willing to pay for it. Thanks in advance.
