Deservedly forgotten

Maybe it's a coincidence that the film careers of the leading players Whiting and Simmonds were brought to an end after this film.In the case of Whiting he made the decision,quite wisely from this appearance,to concentrate on the stage.In the case of Simmonds age caught up with her and she subsequently divided her time between the stage and TV movies.The problem with this film is that the characters and the story is just unsustainable.Whitings character is an excruciating bore.When he is on screen it is like someone is drawing their nails down a blackboard.Simmonds is a bored housewife who is more likely to give him a kick were it hurts rather than play along with him.The films only moment of interest is when they go to the flat of Simmonds mother who is played by Evelyn Laye.Also note at the beginning there is no snow at the beginning of the film.At Cobham station it is thick on the ground,and when the train arrives at Victoria there is no snow.
