Storyline

In a London nursing home, Jean Wilson, a happily-married American woman, while in a state of self-consciousness, hears Jimmy Del Palma, angrily berate the hospital management for the out-dated treatment used on his wife, who dies a bit later. When she is well again, Jean rents the former home of Del Palma, a famous concert pianist, and his late wife. Not knowing why, she begins to fall in love with the absent man and on hearing about his wife's death, dreams of taking her place. Her dream comes to close to becoming reality.

The 43 Year Old James Mason
31 October 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Having caught the attention of Hollywood in 'Odd Man Out' (I don't know why), James Mason was shipped across the pond to appear in films like these and act alongside some of the studios finest actresses. This film was not worth the flight.
