Diana Wynyward has left her husband, Colin Clive and gone on a cruise. Friend James, who's known to his friends as Tony, is on the same cruise ship with her. He has always loved her, but she never reciprocated his feelings. Colin follows her and they have a confrontation which doesn't go well. In order for a divorce, the husband must prove infidelity on her part and the wife starting the procedure just isn't done. Colin's career and stature and Diana's reputation are at stake. Diana does spend time with Tony and does begin to form feelings for him. Will her association with him lead to her happiness or her downfall? Directed by James Whale of "Frankenstein" and "Bride of Frankenstein" fame and the subject of the 1990s film, "Gods and Monsters," this film has good production values in lush black and white with good actors, especially those in supporting roles. But the film is so restrained and proper, you hardly feel for her predicament and not that moved by anything that happens. What should have been better, considering the talent involved, is just a story-line that merely goes to its end and then you do something else.
