Storyline

Lord Windermere appears to all -including to his young wife Margaret - as the perfect husband. But their happy marriage is placed at risk when Lord Windermere starts spending his afternoons with an adventuress who is working her way through London's high society, Mrs. Erlynne. Worse, Windermere gives her big sums of money. To crown it all he asks his wife to invite the detestable woman to her own birthday party. Upset and outraged, the puritan Lady Windermere decides to leave her husband and goes to Lord Robert Darlington, who has been courting her for some time. Unfortunately she leaves her fan -the one Robert offered her for her birthday - in Robert's house... Written by Guy Bellinger

George Sanders plays an older man
1 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

Madeleine Carroll is way passed her best in this film and it comes towards the end of her career when she was making one film a year. I've never been a fan of Carroll even when she was in the Hitchcock films. And she added nothing to Cecil B. DeMille's 'North West Mounted Police'.

George Sanders plays an older man, but in flashback when he plays his usual self he is taken by Jeanne Crain. He was better in 'Samson and Delilah' which came out the same year.

I think Otto Preminger's handling of 'Laura' was far superior. This offering comes nowhere near the quality of 'Laura' in terms of story, performance, direction and production values.
