Storyline

A recently-qualified barrister is annoyed when he finds his firm is taking on the boss's niece. The two youngsters soon find themselves in court on opposite sides in a case on the restitution of conjugal rights where both plaintiff and defendant seem to have things to hide. The irascible and rather fearsome judge has little time for the goings-on, least of all the way the two young lawyers seem rather too keen to squabble with each other. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

I look on this film as both a film buff and a retired lawyer.I started my training about 4 years after this film was made and i think it may well have reflected society's then view of women lawyers,namely that their judgment was ruled by their emotions and not clear logical thought.I was actually articled to a woman solicitor and i have to say that she was a clear headed professional woman.Mind you women lawyers were extremely rare.In my class at Law School there was only one one woman in a class of 44.So many of the attitudes of the era are shown here.For example the stigma of children born out of marriage.Anyway having said that i would add that this is an amusing film with a fairly distinguished cast which kept me fully entertained.
