Goofs

Early on, Condomine puts a record on an acoustic gramophone and puts the needle down to the left of the spindle, where it would dig into the record if it would play at all. (The image has not been reversed because the record is still turning clockwise.) See more »

Not as bad as some make out.
16 January 2021 | by Foxtrot-Alpha777See all my reviews

If you liked the stage play then I would imagine you would have a few issues with this film, however if you are not aware of the play or the 1945 film based upon the play then you will probably like this version. I never really liked the original film so not that emotional about comparing the two but many prefer the first attempt.

Does this capture Noel Cowards wit, not really but that maybe no bad thing.

Enjoy it for what it is, a simple story with a lacklustre ending to while away some time.
