A Date with a Dream is a 1948 British musical comedy film directed by Dicky Leeman and starring Terry-Thomas, Jeannie Carson and Wally Patch.[1] Its plot concerns a wartime group of musical entertainers who meet up a year after being demobbed and decide to reform their act. It was the first production of Tempean Films.This was one of Terry-Thomas's first films and is reputedly partly based on his own experiences. [2]


When an Army concert party is disbanded after the war, they plan to meet up in a years time for a reunion. When they do they discover that all the various members aren't coping too well with civilian life. Jean, a singer who is staying in the same house as two of the ex-concert party members, suggests that the various members get back together to perform.[3]


Critical reception

Sky Movies wrote, "a sparkling performance from the young Terry-Thomas and a bright, sassy attitude saves this dated, rather choppy little filler item from the scrapheap of movie history. Worth a look for nostalgia buffs and curio collectors." [4]
