Plodding Remake
17 May 2015 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This is an extremely undistinguished remake of Lord Cambers Ladies(1932)The film has an exceptionally silly storyline through which Dinah Sheridan has to suffer during the whole turgid time.She is let down twice by nasty cad Derek Farr,She is so deluded that she cannot even believe the reports in the paper of his marriage to a wealthy older woman.She has a responsible job as a nursing sister.then because she is good at her job she is whisked away to treat a sick patient with an untried drug.Of course it turns out that she is the wife of Farr,who has now become Lord Camber,Safe to say that it is not long before he starts making advances to her again.there is one patently absurd scene where the wife impersonates Sheridan on a phone call to her husband to try and trap him.Lets just say the sound editor did a good job.The wife dies by poisoning and Sheridan is accused only to be cleared at the end and finally gets to romance the doctor.It is a very dated period piece.
