Nothing Startling, But Charming
18 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

Margaret Lockwood is to be married to Derek Farr. The stresses of planning and getting to the blessed event threaten their hopes of a quiet wedding.

Director Anthony Asquith directs from a script by Anatole de Grunwald and Terrence Rattigan. The ins and outs and stresses are not new to the dedicated film watcher, but it is a charming movie, with a very able cast. If you check down the list of players, you'll see small roles for Margaret Rutherford, Bernard Miles and even Terry-Thomas as an extra. Although it is based on a stage play by Esther McCracken, it has been transferred ably to the screen with a couple of nicely offered montages.

Although the story of a wedding almost destroyed by the stresses of a big wedding are not new, this is a fine addition to the pleasant assortment of films on the subject.
