Product description

Gordon MacRae and Shirley Jones star in this classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical. The story follows carnival barker Billy Bigelow (MacRae) who, one night, meets the love of his life, millworker Julie Jordan (Jones). As the two get whisked up in a romantic love affair, their professional lives begin to suffer and they both lose their jobs. When Julie reveals to Billy that she is carrying his child, Billy worries about not being able to provide for his family and agrees to join his low-life acquaintance Jigger Craigin (Cameron Mitchell) in a robbery. When they discover that their target, the wealthy Mr Bascombe (John Dehner), is unusually armed, Billy panics and reaches for his knife. After a scuffle however, Billy winds up the worse off and ends up having to watch his daughter grow up from Heaven.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
