MPAA Rating: Not Rated
John Mills stars in this celebrated adaptation of the H.G. Wells classic novel. Alfred Polly is a sensitive soul. His job as a draper’s assistant does not suit him at all and when, one day he is sacked for day-dreaming, he despairs of ever finding another job. His father’s death suddenly brings him a large inheritance, and with it he purchases a bike and sets off to find himself. Adventure and romance ensue but soon his history finds a way of repeating. A classic tale of fate or chance, the History of Mr. Polly sheds light on the vicissitudes of life in a way only Wells could convey.
