"......We're nice people, you and I". And so they are. Which is why the unlikley love affair of GP Alec Harvey and ordinary housewife Laura Jesson is doomed. Noel Coward palyed Alec in the original 1936 stage production to Gerrude Lawrence's Laura. The play was later made into the film Brief Encounter with Trevor Howard and Celia Johnson.
