Amusing comedy of manners.
11 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

i'm inserting reviews for films I'v seen that so far lack one, this is a rare chance to say something favorable, review.... From a J.B.Priestley play, this is a comedy of manners set in a small Yorkshire town circa 1900, when three leading bigwigs are informed that their marriages are void as the minister was not qualified, good. I'm a fan of director L.Comfort, and this is clearly a rare film, but I saw it in Sep 2011 when it was shown at the NFT in London.
