- I Know Where I'm Going! , directed by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger | Film review.
Last week this English writing-directing team gave us the artistically exciting "Black Narcissus. Wendy Hiller, back on the screen for the first time since "Major Barbara" , is giving a facile, captivating portrayal of a materialistic young woman who believes that money is the springboard to all earthly happiness.

One of the most fascinating sequences of the picture is the Ceilidh "Kayley" , an ancient Highland song and dance ritual, held in honor of a couple celebrating their sixtieth wedding anniversary.
