Merle Oberon and Alex Korda started a beautiful friendship on this film, which often meant starting to rehearse by 12:30 in the afternoon followed quickly by lunch which lasted until 3:30pm which meant filming finishing by 10 or 11 at night! See more »
When on the ship, Logan and Leslie move to the bulwark and Logan holds on to the pillar to his right. In the very next shot, he has both of his hands on the top rail and then holds on to the pillar to his right again. See more »
We have ample opportunities in this court for learning what women mean, or what they mean they mean if in these days they mean anything at all.

I have become quite fond of Laurence Olivier in the past few weeks, and was thrilled when I discovered this gem. I have always found it wonderful when I run across a film where I do not have to have my finger on the remote control in case nudity rears its ugly head.
The Divorce of Lady X is charming till the final scene, and must have been a true delight for viewers back in 1938. I only wish people today could accept and love true humor instead of the horrid trash talk people now call funny.
The Divorce of Lady X is well worth anyone's time.
