Here Come The Huggetts

Here Come The Huggetts

HERE COME THE HUGGETTS. The first of a trio of Gainsborough Pictures (1948-1949) British films about a working class English family all directed by Ken Annakin. The main cast are factory workers Joe Huggett and his wife Ethel (the couple had been introduced a year earlier) in the film Holiday Camp (1947) with Petula Clark / Jane Hylton and Susan Shaw as their young daughters. The plot lines of this and its sequels ; Vote For Huggett and The Huggetts Abroad revolved around such trivialities as a flighty cousin (Diana Dors) who wrecks the family car / the installation of a telephone / an incursion into municipal politics and an excursion to South Africa (with a diamond smuggler as a fellow passenger) -- these were the type of light comedies that found great favour with British audiences still reeling from the impact of World War 2.  Petula Clark, who began her career as a child vocalist on BBC Radio, sang the tune "Walking Backwards" in the film
