I really enjoyed this film! My middle daughter is a big Margaret Rutherford fan and she really excelled in this. Constance Cummings was also brilliant in her part and I think it is sad that she did not excel in film afterwards for whatever reason. I only heard about this film a number of months ago and since buying it on DVD I have watched it a number of times and still enjoy it.
Its a film from a "bygone" era so to speak as they really don't make films like these anymore.
I would highly recommend this film and would have no hesitation in giving it a 10 out of 10!!
