A Canterbury Tale (U)

UK/1944/125mins/U. Dir: Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger With: Eric Portman, Sheila Sim, Dennis Pric

A Land Girl, an American GI, and a British soldier find themselves together in a small Kent town which is being plagued by a mysterious “glue-man”, who pours glue on the hair of girls dating soldiers after dark. The three attempt to track him down, and begin to have suspicions of the local magistrate, an eccentric figure with a strange, mystical vision of the history of England in general and Canterbury in particular.

"Sincerity and simplicity shine through every foot of this oversized modern version of the Chaucer epic tale. Here is rare beauty."
