Brighton Story 1955

24 mins United Kingdom Director. Pamela Bower

The Sussex skyline has changed dramatically since the making of this quirky and colourful yarn about a Regency-era 'ghost' (Alec Clunes - father of Martin) who returns to Brighton to explore his old haunts. Though 1970s concrete carbuncles have yet to make an appearance, the sight of daytrippers enjoying the seaside pleasures of ice-cream and candyfloss is as recognisable then as now, as is shopping for vintage treasures in the Lanes.
