A must see for all Viv and Larry fans - how much better can you get than a movie where Olivier's character is actually called Larry, with Leigh's Wanda saying such lines as "I love you LARRY"? Awww, it's perfect! She's tiny and sweet, he's dashing and handsome, and together there's almost no better pair.
Larry kills Wanda's husband - whom she has not seen for 3 years - in self-defence, then leaves the body in the street. Another man is held for trial over the murder, and Larry stays quiet, deciding that if the man is announced innocent then it will be OK, but if the man is proclaimed guilty, he will own up. The verdict is in 3 weeks, so he and Wanda make the most of what little time they may have left..
