It is possible to view A night to remember in the same way, as a 1950s British film typical of these qualities – "good taste, restraint and reticence"-whilst also acknowledging that the film still utilises the over-arching dramatic structure of melodrama and many of the dramatic devices associated with this mode including pathos.
Richards's analysis of A night to remember from the point of view of "nation", "gender", "religion" and "ethnicity" is less convincing as it appears imposed rather than flowing logically from the overall film.
