| Those Shropshire twins
Wedding Rehearsal is an interesting and gloriously dated film of upper class society in Great Britain between the World Wars. It's hard to believe that these twits actually ruled a world wide empire, coming apart at the seams as it was in 1932.

Roland Young a titled Marquis loves the life of a bachelor, but unless he gets married and quick he's going to be cut out of the will and then heaven forfend might have to go to work. So he becomes a matchmaker to the Shropshire twins Wendy Barrie and Joan Gardner to a pair of commoners but with the distinctly British upper crust names of Binkie (John Loder) and Toodles (Maurice Evans).

In the meantime it's commoner Merle Oberon who sets her cap for Young and of course what do you think happens in the end. Not terribly hard to figure out.

To say this is dated is to say milk is white. Back in the day Hitler over in the Germany he took over used to import films like this to show how truly decadent the British had become and what an easy place it would be to knock over. After looking at Wedding Rehearsal you might think so.

This was Alexander Korda's first film and he did love the British aristocracy.

Binkie and Toodles? I mean, really.
