Not particularly deep or memorable, but pretty good for 1918
23 August 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Considering that this film was made as early as it was, it was a pretty good film that is still reasonably watchable. While it lacks to huge epic scope of the films of Griffith or DeMille of that era, it is still a nice simple romantic comedy. In some ways, I often prefer this type of film over the mega-movies that were just becoming popular--as a light and simple movie sometimes just "hits the spot". Had this movie been made a decade later, I probably would have scored it as a five or six--but for 1918, it was good stuff. Oddly, while the film is set in Britain in the Summer of 1918, there is no mention of WWI--which had already been raging for years and wouldn't end until almost 1919.

The film is a simple marital mix-up that escalates out of control and results in a marriage on the rocks--much like the later films THE AWFUL TRUTH or MR. AND MRS. SMITH (the Hitchcock version--not the new film with the same name but totally different plot). The acting is pretty good, direction snappy and fun to watch--while not exactly believable.

By the way, this film was produced for the CINEVENT movie show in 1996 and shows a brief introduction as well as introducing the pianist who did the live accompaniment at this showing. In other words, this was a small-time locally produced video that I found at my local library--I doubt if it can be found at AMAZON or other movie retailers. And, based on the sparsity of reviews, the fact that you are even reading this now is amazing!
