Crown v. Stevens (1936)

** (out of 4)

Michael Powell directs this film about an apparent abused wife (Beatrix Thomson) who gets an innocent clerk (Patrick Knowles) involved with her dirty schemes. The only interesting thing about this film is its history. When Britain put a ban on films from the U.S., Warner went there and made Teddington Studios, which is where this film was made. These films were only allowed to be shown in Britain so this film was never seen in America until TCM included it in their "Lost and Found" series. As for the actual film, Powell just hasn't worked for me much as a director. He tells this story in an interesting way in the fact that there's no plot twists or turns but just a straight story. The only problem is that this story bored the hell out of me to the point where I was hoping the movie would end after the twenty-minute mark. The two leads are pretty bland in the film as well.
