Miss Pilgrim's Progress is a 1949 black-and-white British comedy film by producer Nat Cohen and director Val Guest.[1]


Laramie Pilgrim (Yolande Donlan) is an American exchange factory worker who trades places with an upper class British girl. After much adjusting to English country life, and with the various attendant culture clashes, Miss Pilgrim comes to the rescue of her new village and its exploitation by a local land developer.



Critical reception[edit]

TV Guide gave the film two out of four stars, and wrote, "the script relies on the surefire technique of cultural differences for humor, with the English countryside providing a pleasant background." [2]
