One of the worst movies of Errol Flynn's career. A terrible soaper with Flynn as a composer who strings along a young widowed mother (a painfully miscast Ida Lupino) while romancing his brother's ex-girlfriend, wealthy Eleanor Parker. There's melodramatic "romance," tired class clichés, a couple of forgettable songs, and even a dead baby to keep things light. It's all overwrought with some of the most unlikable characters I've seen any of these actors play. The movie does have one thing going for it -- it's the last movie scored by the great Erich Wolfgang Korngold. Unfortunately that's not enough to save it from being the forgettable piece of mediocrity that it is. Escape Me Never is an adaptation of a play of the same name. It was apparently made into a film before, in 1935, but I haven't seen that nor do I have any intention to. I'm not big on soaps and I only tried this one out due to Flynn. Very disappointing.
