Quite good for it's age.
2 April 2016 | by (Toronto) – See all my reviews

When I came across this I, as is my habit, checked out the IMDb rating and reviews. I was intrigued that it had such a high score for an older movie and gave it a shot. I'm glad that I did. While it did amble along a bit, the plot was quite good. It had me fooled right up until the end, without being silly or stretching credence.

The acting, as has been pointed out, is wooden by modern standards but therein lies some of it's charm. It is after all more than 80 years old. The scenery and mores are of a time gone by and are a nice glimpse into an England between the wars.

It's also interesting to watch Loretta young's older sister, Sally Blane in the role of Sylvia Kennett.

So, the bottom lie is that should you have a Sunday afternoon free and this film comes along, give it a go.
