Glad Tidings is a 1953 British comedy film directed by Wolf Rilla and starring Barbara Kelly, Raymond Huntley and Ronald Howard.[1] It was based on the play of the same title by R. F. Delderfield and made at the Nettlefold Studios in Walton-on-Thames.[2] The film's art direction was by John Stoll.[1] The backers Eros Films were pleased enough with the film's success to adapt another Delderfield play as Where There's a Will in 1955.[3]


A retired RAF officer returns home to his sleepy little rural community with an attractive new American fiancée, to the initial resentment of his children.


Critical reception

TV Guide dismissed the film as a "Plodding domestic trifle",[4] whereas Sky Cinema approved the fact that the piece provided "Raymond Huntley and Barbara Kelly (Bernard Braden's wife) with rare leading roles in a feature film. Huntley gets a chance to break away from his stuffy bureaucrats and he's a pleasure to watch."[5]
