Ronald Colman is one of those players who with the lilt of his voice can make a reading of Erie County phone directory a treat for the ear. But even that can get tiresome after a while. So could this play which is completely dependent on one getting and keeping your attention with Colman's voice and diction.
For a half hour we listened to Colman first with his wife and then at his office rhapsodize about professional responsibility. Husband and wife are easy here as Colman is paired with his real life spouse Benita Hume and co-star of his popular radio show Halls Of Ivy.
But it seems as though Colman is given to voyeur like fantasies as his patients tell their tales. What a practice this guy has, all glamorous women like Patricia Morison, Hillary Brooke, and Elizabeth Fraser. As they talk Colman imagines himself in their lives. After a while the audience feels like a voyeur.
I love Ronald Colman, but this was too much for him to carry.
