Set in wartime Britain, A Canterbury Tale begins with rural justice of the peace Eric Portman adopting a "lock up your daughters" policy when the American soldiers are stationed nearby.
History in Film
Cast: Esmond Knight, Sheila Sim, Hay Petrie, Sgt. John Sweet, Freda Jackson, Eric Portman, Dennis Price, Charles Hawtrey
To escape the arbitrary edicts of Portman, British tank sergeant Dennis Price, American GI John Sweet and shopkeeper Sheila Sim head down the road of Canterbury.
In film each of the principals finds their lives changed by the journey. In particular, Sweet (a real-life American sergeant) encounters genuine romance.
A product of the always adventuresome "Archers" (Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger).
Such a luminous and magical masterpiece, this film is, in our opinion, a classic conservative-principle promoting film. This story is indeed on the list of thought-provoking films.
It subtly recants Chaucer's original story, but it is an original Powell and Pressburger production that that resonates the history of England.
This is definitely a film that should be appreciated more than once.
