the man in possession

| No Comments

January 18 movie: The Man in Possession. This was a great movie which requires some explanation. According to the movie, in England, if a person owed money, the bailiff could post someone in their house. And the debtor would have to let the person stay in their house until they paid the debt. Can anyone who lives or has lived in England confirm if this was true in the 30s, and if so is it still true now? It's kind of hard to imagine.

Anyway, Robert Montgomery is the guy who has to stay in the house, he falls in love with the woman who owes the money, P.G. Wodehouse did some of the writing, and do you really need to know any more? I enjoyed Robert Montgomery month immensely, especially this one.
