Disappointing
26 May 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Lydia (Claudette Colbert) leaves her husband Tony (Ray Milland) who she has been married to for 5 years because he puts his career first. Jim (Brian Aherne) moves in on her and she rather sluttishly encourages his flirtations. Lydia and Tony divorce and Lydia starts to hang out with Jim....

If the above summary sounds interesting to you, and you expect nothing else to happen, then you'll like the film. Personally, I lost count of the number of times that I slipped off into a daydream. What a waste of a good cast. Colbert and Milland are fine to watch, though - Milland gives the best dramatic moment as he concedes defeat to Aherne and walks away from the new lovers. Whilst Milland starts as a dislikable character, the audience turns in his favour as the film develops. He is extremely tolerant of the nasty Aherne character - the number of times he tolerates his presence verges on the saintly. Colbert is a silly bitch in this film.

Overall, despite an effort to engage myself in the proceedings, there was only about half an hour's worth of story in this effort, and so I couldn't. It's boring. Women will probably like it.
