Trivia

According to Jane Wyatt, "Jimmy Whale was crazy about Mrs. Pat. The set was kind of run for her. The whole thing was to get her relaxed. She was playing up a lot about how nervous she was, and I think she got an awful lot of attention that way. i think we felt sorry for Mrs. Campbell. Poor dear - how ever are they going to pull her together. That was my reaction. We all had to pull her together and help her through." See more »

Quotes

Lady Mont: [Referring to a pain in her side] I don't know whether it's flatulence or the hand of God.

Angst of a bygone era
28 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a superior film, but its impact is attenuated by the great changes in social attitudes toward sex and divorce which have occurred since the time it was filmed. The conflicts and tensions in the story could only occur today in third world nations or very religious communities. Thus, most American viewers can wonder what all the excitement is about.

Diana Wynyard is a revelation. When the film began, she appeared a bit on the plain side. However, she became enchantingly beautiful as the movie progressed. Her soft, pleasant, kind features and the exquisite shape of her head and body impressed me more and more, as did her calm manner and then her assertive testimony in court.She became irresistible.

Universal gave this a veneer of a prestige production. It looked like it was shot in England, except that most of the English performers were already old Hollywood hands. Jane Wyatt wisely didn't try for an English accent. Whales' direction was seamless, but not as flashy as his more famous horror productions. He kept things moving briskly.
