Mistaken Identity!
17 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

In my younger days, I was a great fan of film fairs. In fact, I even helped to organize a few myself. Early on in this love affair, I came across a seller who had a 16mm print of "The Farmer's Wife" on sale. Naturally, I thought it was the 1928 Alfred Hitchcock movie starring Jameson Thomas as the farmer, plus Lillian Hall Davis and Gordon Harker. Fortunately, it didn't cost me much, but imagine my disappointment when it turned out to be this 1941 remake! Not that this movie is all that bad! And at least it's the same broad matrimonial farce from the pen of Eden Phillpotts. But this re-make, alas, is directed without any distinction by Norman Lee and Leslie Arliss, both of whom also collaborated on the screenplay with J.E. Hunter. Alas, the plot has little going for it. It's not only very predictable, but not terribly interesting. We all know how it's going to turn out. Fortunately, this version does present us with a great cast led by Patricia Roc and Michael Wilding and it sure is beautifully photographed by Claude Friese-Greene. And what's perhaps even more important, this version also serves up some really enjoyable musical interludes.
