| Lesson of the Day: See Another Movie
Diana Churchill is married to Henry Kendall and they're both a bit bored. June Clyde is married to Romney Brent and they're both a bit bored. In walks Rex Harrison who tells the husbands they need to pay more attention to their wives. The wives think a dalliance with fifth-billed Sexy Rexy is in order. Alas, I was bored.

At least part of the the problem was the poor copy I saw. Its audio track reduced the married couples to much the same sort of nasal drone that made it hard for me to understand what they were saying. However, the real problem with the film was that while it promises lascivious goings-on, except for scenes of the two leading ladies in their scanties, demonstrating how to roll their stockings, there aren't any. It teases the audience, but never delivers.

It's based on a stage play by Frederick Jackson and, except for about five minutes of its length is shot in the living room of the Kendall-Churchill flat. The dialogue is neither particularly witty nor deep, although it is possible that the censors laid a heavy hand on the script. Nonetheless, we cannot judge a film by what it might have been under other circumstances, but by what is was when we saw it, and this one was not particularly good.
