Just wanted to let you know that 'The Happy Family', a feature film made in 1951, is showing at BFI Southbank
on Tues 3 May at 6pm. I can't remember the last time that the film was shown, and it's not available on DVD, however it's one of the best feature films about life in SE1 that I have seen. Film tells the story of the family who run a corner shop that's about to be demolished due to the development of the Festival of Britain site on the South Bank. From memory, it feels a bit like an Ealing comedy and has a great cast of British character actors. They're also showing a short with it called 'Brief City' that's about the Festival of Britain.
