Storyline

A chance meeting at the site of car accident gives Angela an idea how she can rescue herself and her family from destitution. At home she explains to her husband her plan to seduce and bigamously marry Sir Fabian Ormerod in order to extort money from him. After cleverly engineering a meeting with Sir Fabian at the opera everything seems to be proceeding according to plan until Angela falls pregnant. Knowing of Sir Fabian's desire for an heir Angela convinces Sir Fabian that the child is his and the couple marry. The marriage causes friction with Honesty, the unbalanced daughter from Sir Fabian's first marriage. Events really comes to a head when Harry is born and Honesty realises he will be the heir to the family fortune. The stakes are raised even higher when Angela starts to receive anonymous letters threatening to expose her lurid past. Finally, all hell breaks loose when Harry is kidnapped and the police become involved. Who is the mysterious letter writer? How are these events ... Written by Mark Smith <msmith@osi.co.uk>

This doesn't fly
23 December 2000 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

At the outset, I was fascinated enough with the concept of this film,and the acting didn't seem too bad. But as the story unfolded, I kept shaking my head, and asking myself how the scriptwriter could think anyone could keep on swallowing this. Once I had made the commitment, though, I stuck it out to see how it would crash, or whatever. After two hours (with commercials), the screen said "End of Part I". Well, maybe Part II exposes Part I as a dream-sequence, and all the improbabilities and impossibilities in the story will become irrelevant---but I doubt it. I chose not to yawn through Part II.
