There ain't no answer. You're after justice and logic. There ain't no justice, and there ain't no logic. The world ain't made that way. Everything's luck, see. And good temper. And if you can take a joke. The whole of life's a joke.

There was a time before evil and a time before death...
Vivian Leigh charms and beguiles as does Charles Laughton and Rex Harrison,all of them in their innocence and unaffected excellence. A needful but blithe and hopeful era in London, after the internecine slaughter of World War I and the unimaginable evil of World War II and the Holocaust. To experience these three and others in a blitheful , happy episode of innocent merriment will uplift thee.
