Quotes

Mrs. Freda Chatfield: I wish I knew what to do.
Robert Chatfield: About what?
Mrs. Freda Chatfield: You'd hardly understand, Robert, but I am now facing a most urgent problem; the sort of problem that only women have to face. If a man has been dragged back to your house to be told he's a liar, a cad, and a possible thief, oughtn't you to make a few sandwiches for him?

Conventional Morality again takes it on the chin
13 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Watch this movie from 1934 (from a 1932 English play by J.B. Priestley)to see how early the English-speaking elite began to smash up their values, with a direct path to the mayhem and anomie of the 1960s/70s, and now the politically correct straightjackets of the early 21st century. I don't give it a 10 because of the excisions made to satisfy the censors - too bad for that, as it would have made the movie even more delicious.

For delicious it is, watching people throw up on their values as they wear magnificent gowns, even if we are living with the consequences now. Watch it to see what we need to recover...

Priestley is of the GB Shaw school - tradition and the wisdom of our ancestors is out the window, with no one knowing at the time what great new world awaits us. Unfortunately, we know now, and owe it all to these misguided geniuses for dramatic dialogue.
