Escapade is a 1955 British comedy drama film directed by Philip Leacock and starring John Mills, Yvonne Mitchell and Alastair Sim.[1] It was based on a long-running West End play of the same name by Roger MacDougall.[2]

The film was produced at the Nettlefold Studios in Walton-on-Thames in Surrey.[3] The film's sets were designed by the art director Bernard Robinson.

Plot summary

A husband and father has become so preoccupied with a political cause that it leads him to neglect his familial responsibilities, leading to his children running away from home.


Critical reception

In The New York Times, Bosley Crowther panned the film, writing, "It is a curiously notional and impractical expostulation against war, obviously well-intended but as humorless as a labored gag".[4] Leonard Maltin, on the other hand, gave it three out of four stars, calling it an "Ambitious, insightful, solidly acted drama about the cynicism and hypocrisy of adults and the idealism of youth."[5] TV Guide gave the film two out of four stars, calling it, " okay comedy with a message, but the play was better."[6]
