Stop Press Girl

1949

Michael Barry
Director
Aquila Films
Studio

Silly but harmless tale of Howes, who has the hereditary power to stop all mechanical apparatus she encounters, and the chaos she wreaks when she goes to London. Of note mainly for being the last on-screen pairing of Radford and Wayne.
