I was disappointed in this film, but it's my own fault. I went into it thinking it was some marvelous mystery or noir.
"21 Days Together" has an interesting history. Released in 1940, it was actually made in 1937 but for some reason not released. After Gone with the Wind, I suppose there was a lot of interest in Leigh and the film was released.
The Leigh role was to be played by Vera Zorina, but obviously she didn't do it and Leigh won the role.
The story concerns a young couple in love, but the woman, Wanda (Leigh) is married but not living with her husband. He shows up and attempts blackmail, but gets into a fight with her lover Larry (Olivier) who accidentally kills him.
A man who stole something off of the body is arrested for murder and found guilty. The couple has three weeks together before Larry must give himself up or let an innocent man hang. His brother, who is up for a judgeship, is determined that Larry not admit to the crime.
This film was not close-captioned and, as I am a little hard of hearing, it was difficult to understand some of the dialogue.
I found this an okay drama, well acted for the most part.
Leigh and Olivier made a beautiful couple, and it's always nice to see them together, young and in love. Makes you sad about how it ended.
