Trivia

The print shown on Turner Classic Movies opens with a 1950's RKO Radio Pictures logo, an anachronism because this is a Pathé production, made before the RKO-Pathé merger, but ultimately released to television in the 1950's by C&C Television Corporation in their original RKO feature film package.

Great 'early' Basil
23 May 2004 | by (Brooklyn, NY) – See all my reviews

Not sure what to call this oldie, but I guess drawing-room comedy might answer the mail. The plot centers around a rather interesting or curious love triangle. Girl marries Boy 1, arguably for the wrong reasons. Due to the unique nature of their union, she sets sail for Europe and encounters Boy 2, who, of course, knows Boy 1. On the Continent, Boy 2 becomes quite taken by her. What's a girl to do? Well, to give away the ending would not be nice, so suffice it to say it all gets resolved back in New York, though the ending might not please all viewers. Constance Bennett gets lead billing, but I was much more entertained by the performance of Basil Rathbone, who is just grand. Considering that the film probably takes place at the onset of the Depression, the lifestyles depicted are quite startling.

All in all, a rather delightful film.
