An unusual combination
6 October 2014 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

This film is based on a stage play.It concerns an engaged woman who wants experience of life as she delicately puts it,before she gets married.So she decides to have a fling with her favourite writer,George Curzon.His wife decides to play along with the game.However in the middle of this,the antics of Harry Tate.Now this may be tiresome for fans of Lupino but it is a great bonus for fans of the English music hall.One would guess that when the film was shown there were a lot more fans of Tate than Lupino.Interesting to note that fames Amerucan director Allen Dwan appears to have made no attempt to curb Tate's famous booming delivery.It is difficult to believe that in no more than 10 years Lupino would become one of the biggest stars in Hollywood.Her famous mannerisms have not yet arrived.So a real curiosity of a film.
