Mild Comedy of Manners
25 December 2010 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Hard to resist an amusing title like this. The result, unfortunately, is only mildly amusing with a dollop of suspense thrown in. As her name suggests, Miss Bracegirdle is a very, very proper English lady in the early 1900's. That opening scene says it all, with the very proper afternoon tea and the sheltered ladies fretting over middle-aged Bracegirdle's coming trip to libertine France. How will she manage among the strange Gallic customs.

Well, she manages by locking herself in a strange Frenchman's bedroom who also happens to be dead. Oh my goodness, what will happen to her reputation if she can't escape in time. For her place in life, it's a fate worse than death.

I expect the comedy of manners and gentle humor is better aimed at English audiences than American. By and large, the series attempt at humor was much less successful than its trademark suspense. And, despite Natwick's droll performance, this is one of them.
