Kipps (U.S. title The Remarkable Mr. Kipps) is a 1941 British comedy-drama film adaptation of H. G. Wells's 1905 novel of the same name, directed by Carol Reed. Michael Redgrave stars as a draper's assistant who inherits a large fortune. The film's costumes were designed by Cecil Beaton.
The day before the fourteen-year-old Arthur "Artie" Kipps leaves to begin a seven-year apprenticeship, he asks his friend's sister, Ann Pornick, to be his girl. She gladly agrees. They split a silver sixpence and each keeps half.
