Beautifully played by a fine cast (the two principals, Ivor Novello and Fay Compton, are particularly touching), I'd rate "Autumn Crocus" as one of the best British films of 1934. Basil Dean does a superb job in his triple capacity as screenwriter, director and producer. Not only does he keep the sentiment well under wraps, he directs with just the right mixture of style and assurance. A perfect blend of romance and drama.
