Actresses of the 50s and 60s

Susan Penhaligon and Bruce Robinson

In 1949, British on July 20, 2017 at 10:50 am

Set and shot in middle class England in the ‘70s, Private Road depicts the relationship between Peter, a promising young writer played by Bruce Robinson, and Ann, the quietly strong-willed secretary at his publishers played by Susan Penhaglion. They go out together, start sleeping together, and move in together. Ann falls pregnant and the decision is made, very much not together, that she should have an abortion. After she does, her relationship with Peter is tested and he must—or, rather, he believes he must—choose between being a single novelist or a married advertising copywriter. Pop Matters.
