Josephine and Three Men
7 December 2010 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Josephine Luton was the making of two men: one by jilting him and the other by marrying him. However, when the first turns out to be legally responsible for embezzling half a million pounds, he hides out with his ex-fiancée and her husband....

Like many of the Boulting Brothers' films, this one turns out to be dramatically too neat to survive their handling -- their specialty was angry-young-men comedies in the era, and the structure of this one is definitely stagy. However, as their movies were very fashionable, they usually managed to assemble great casts, and this one is no exception, with Jack Buchanan as Josephine's rake of an uncle, serving as commentator on the action, the always engaging Glynis Johns -- as the titular Josephine -- and Peter Finch as two of the leads.

It's not a great movie, but the cast manages to milk their roles for everything they're worth.
