Goofs

When Charles and Ruth are in the kitchen (in the scene where Ruth burns her hand on the scorched casserole dish, which she had just removed from the oven), feeling a bit amorous, Ruth suggests they move their davenport beds back together. This was a moot suggestion. In a previous scene, the twin beds are already pushed back together. See more »

Ruin a classic

This version did not keep any of the coward humour or elegance his works were known for . I've seen various adaptations of this text but this went too far away from that
