This is the first time I have seen Jessie Mathews as I'm only 41 years old. I was absolutely delighted to see a star of the past that id never seen before. From the first time we see her its love at first sight and it just draws you right into the movie. I understand Jessie Mathews was a superstar in her time and its easy to see why. You could transpose her to any movie of today and she would still be a superstar, in the Julia Roberts or Reese Witherspoon etc (or maybe even better) League of today.
The uncle lawyer gave a good performance as well. It was interesting to see the movie from a historical perspective as well like the motor cars which was quite amazing.
Overall a great movie.
