Her First Credited Role
1 November 2017 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Was Ida Lupino really 14 when she shot this movie? She certainly looked it, but it's her first credited screen role, and it seems unlikely she would be entrusted with a lead like that, even with her familial connections.

George Curzon writes trashy novels in which beautiful women defy conventions and have grand times doing so. Miss Lupino, newly engaged to Arnold Riches, has a passion for his writing and breaks into his home, where she decides that the two of them -- Curzon and she -- are in love. Diana Napier, Curzon's wife, is encouraged by Helen Haye to give her husband some room to play so he will come back to her.

It's a fun and fast movie, directed by Allan Dwan during his British sojourn, and there are several bright comic performances, including Harry Tate as a blustery major and Roland Culver -- who would develop into a fine, low-key dramatic actor in the 1940s -- as a drunk toff. While very much a piece of its time, this movie, with its short length, its notable actors in early roles and good humor, is still very much worth watching.
