My Wife's Lodger (1952)

A slightly odd movie and suffering from severe budget constraints (most noticeable in some decidedly over-long sequences and an ending that, to put it kindly, feels extremely rushed), My Wife's Lodger is nevertheless a rather entertaining film. When Willie Higginbotham (Dominic Roche) comes home from the war he finds himself a stranger and virtual outcast from his family, playing second fiddle to Roger the lodger (Leslie Dwyer), a dodgy dealer who has everyone convinced that he's a big man in business. Diana Dors also features as Willie's daughter Eunice, while Olive Sloane plays Maggie, his wife.

Somewhat strange, but definitely watchable.
