This delightful film's script is a descendant of the sort of archly witty
portrayals of British upper-class life that came from the pens of Somerset
Maugham and Noel Coward (one of whose songs serves as musical lead-in, and
at least one of whose tunes ["Mad About the Boy" - listen for it] serves as
background music to comment on the action). The atmosphere of this sort of
comedy may be a bit foreign to American tastes (the whole topic of
infidelity is discussed in such a civilized and gentlemanly fashion among
the parties- Stiff Upper Lip and all that - where Americans would be
screaming at each other and going for weaponry) but as a devotee of British
drama I enjoyed the movie hugely. It's a stellar cast - everyone shines,
right down to Moray Watson in the small but delicious part of the befuddled
butler Sellers. Jean Simmons is especially enjoyable in her out-of-character
portrayal as the outspokenly vampish Hattie. Despite opinions below to the
contrary, the incomparable Cary Grant fills the part of this
down-at-the-heels English Lord like old brandy fills a crystal decanter. The
sumptuous setting of the baronial manor and the high production values make
the film beautiful to look at, to boot. (The fact that the unfortunate Lord
is forced to open his manor to paying visitors to support his lifestyle is
based on the historical truth of the confiscatory tax policies imposed on
the British hereditary gentry by post-WWII Labor governments; everyone is
entitled to their own opinions on these policies, but be assured the film
makes no political comment).
It does stretch the imagination a tad that Victor could treat the whole
issue of his wife's infidelity - going on right in front of his nose - in
such a dispassionate manner, but that is a characteristic of this genre.
Further, Grant manages to convince us that, beneath his outer
imperturability, his wife's disloyalty has pained him deeply and he could
not stand to lose her.
This is a not-well-known film whose appeal might be a bit specialized, but I
think it's a minor gem. And I could not omit mentioning the charming opening
credits with their bevy of delightfully cavorting babies.
