Alive and Kicking DVD

Directed by Cyril Frankel



Cyril Frankel directs this 1960s British comedy in which a trio of elderly women set out to defy society's expectations of them.

Dora (Sybil Thorndike), Rosie (Kathleen Harrison) and Mabel (Estelle Winwood) become friendly at an old people's home, though they dislike being confined there.

When they learn that plans are being made that will see the three of them separated, they decide that enough is enough and run away from the home.

They find refuge on a small island; that is, until a millionaire returns home and finds the women living in his cottages.

Will he allow them to stay?
