She wanted to go riding with the chauffeur
29 September 2011 | by (london) – See all my reviews

An aristocratic Nora Swinburne is attracted by the callow youth of Laurence Olivier as her new young chauffeur.As he comes to her rescue when she is pawed by a friend in the back of her car she takes quite a shine to him.The scene moves from London to a very modern art deco house in the country.Swinburne is attended by her french maid,played by a very young,Elsa Lanchester who plays an almost pivotal role in the affair.Swinburne keeps making a play for Oliver but for some reason he rejects her and says she is one "of those sort of women".This enrages Swinburne who makes a rumpus and the police are called and Olivier is accused of criminal assault.The case goes to court.Olivier is represented by donald Calthorpe of Blackmail fame.He proves that Swinburne is lying.Collapse of the case.As a result Swinburnes husband replaces Olivier with a new married chauffeur who is unattractive and married much to Swinburnes frustration.Interesting to see Olivier in his third film and Lanchester both at the beginnings of their respective film careers.Elvey,an experienced director,does try a few tracking shots but a lot of it is quite static.A scene at a breakfast table where all 7 characters are in view and no attempt to switch to close ups.Still it is of some historic interest.
