Description by OLDIES.com:
The joyous screen version of the Broadway and London musical hit. "If I had the money, I'd buy me a banjo!" says struggling sales clerk Arthur Kipps (Tommy Steele). Soon he'll inherit enough to buy a whole bloomin' orchestra. But can his newfound wealth buy happiness?
Multi-talented Steele brings his London and New York stage smash to the screen in this big, cheerful, tune-filled production based on H.G. Wells' charming novel "Kipps." Cyril Ritchard costars as a thespian who introduces Arthur to the joys of Edwardian London's music halls. And a huge cast of high-stepping, high-spirited singers and dancers have the time of their lives. Enjoy, because Half A Sixpence gets you a million dollars worth of fun!
A penniless draper's assistant (Tommy Steele) inherits a fortune and soon has his pick of society's belles in this musical based on H.G. Wells' novel KIPPS. Directed by George Sydney (SHOW BOAT, BYE BYE BIRDIE), the classic comedy promises great laughs and songs.
An ebullient musical, set in Edwardian England and very loosely based on a novel by H.G. Wells.
A young man gains and then loses a fortune -- but becomes wiser and more decent from the experience.
