    Boasting some of post-war Britain’s most accomplished screen stars, this romantic comedy charts the tribulations of a materially challenged but deeply loving young couple. Starring Dirk Bogarde, Cecil Parker and Dennis Price, For Better, For Worse (U) is co-scripted and directed by Oscar-nominated Jack Lee-Thompson, and received two BAFTA nominations in 1954. 

    When impoverished young graduate Tony Howard proposes to Anne Purves in the cinema, he is readily accepted. Her father listens patiently to Tony when he asks for his daughter's hand, but receiving far from satisfactory answers to the usual father-in-law questions, he agrees to the marriage only on the condition that Tony finds both a job and a flat.
