Elopers, Take Warning!
18 February 2004 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

The Dover Road takes two pairs of adulterous lovers to the unconventional mansion WHERE SINNERS MEET.

Based on a play by A. A. Milne (the creator of Winnie-the-Pooh), this forgotten little film will come as a surprise & delight for discriminating viewers who enjoy sophisticated repartee & witty dialogue. Virtually no action occurs, but there is almost endless talk on a rather high intellectual level. Except for the opening & closing scenes, the entire plot takes place at the house and grounds of a rather splendid residence in the South of England. While this only heightens the feeling of watching a filmed play, all is forgiven amid the pleasure of enjoying what the characters are saying.

Clive Brook stars as the mysterious Mr. Latimer, who enforces a gentle morality upon his indiscreet house guests. Brook was an elegant actor, excellent with dialogue, who could communicate his feelings with the bare minimum of inflection or movement. Here he's given a wonderful opportunity to show his skills to advantage, starting with his eccentric entrance heralded by marching, regimented servants. Diana Wynyard, cool & crisp, adds her no-nonsense presence as a charming young woman literally halted on her road towards making a big romantic mistake.

Blustery, bellowing Reginald Owen & fluttery, smothering Billie Burke portray a noble couple who each attempt to escape from their stultifying marriage. They are vastly entertaining. Alan Mowbray plays a decent yet boring chap who still has a few lessons to learn in the game of love. Gilbert Emery is properly droll as a butler with unusual skills.
