Marvelous Joan Greenwood is truly one in a million.
4 October 2001 | by (Mountain Mesa, California) – See all my reviews

Sophisticated Joan Greenwood, blessed with one of the most uniquely attractive voices in cinema history, is not permitted to use it during a good portion of this splendid comedy as a wartime accident has removed her character's aural powers, though not her skills of allurement, which easily overcome the tenuous resistance of three bachelor scientists. Hugh Williams, as Tony, is the head of a government research institute and lives happily upon the laboratory grounds with two of his subordinates, Prendergast (Basil Radford) and Fotheringham (Naunton Wayne), all served by Peabody, their butler (Wylie Watson), when through the fanciful plot written by Muriel and Sydney Box appears the stricken dumb 19 year old Gay (Greenwood) whose obvious aim is a romantic liaison with Tony. He is recently divorced from an extraordinarily garrulous Molly, played sublimely by Yvonne Owen, and he finds the inability of Gay to present her views except by the writing of notes to be an exhilarating change, soon realizing that he is responding to the young woman's silent doe-eyed blandishments, somewhat to the dissatisfaction of his two cohorts. What follows, in the face of budding romance, is amusing melodramatic business, creatively directed by Francis Searle in his first effort, with particularly tasteful verbal interplay among the three curmudgeons and with a strong performance by Watson as Peabody, the cello playing man of all domestic skills to the threesome. The most dramatic scenes revolve about a concert attended by Tony and Gay, which gives the viewer a rare opportunity to see and hear gifted pianist Eileen Joyce, a sidelight only, but one which presents an associate contrast with what transpires during the musical event and which is preparatory for the climax of this highly satisfactory film.
