Genevieve – A simply delightful romp, and easily one of the best-loved and most inventive British comedies of the post war era, which follows the exploits and misfortunes of two highly competitive friends, as they race against each other in the famous London to Brighton car rally. John Gregson stars as a stiff-shirted lawyer, who gets baited by his boisterous friend (Kenneth More) to wager a bet on who will win the race.
