| Myrna Loy and the Unlucky Opal
Myrna Loy stars as Lady Brooke in this British drama about a woman who accompanies her sick husband to convalesce in Italy, leaving behind her lover (Richard Greene). After a poison pen letter arrives, warning the husband (Roger Livesey) about his wife, Loy has to think past and makes up a story that Greene is actually in love with their daughter (Peggy Cummins). But things take a turn for the worst when both the daughter and the lover arrive in Italy.

Loy encourages Greene to go along with the charade while he's in Italy, but she doesn't count on two things: 1 that Cummins is secretly in love with Greene, and 2 that the opal necklace he gives her will prove to be unlucky.

Loy swallows a bitter pill when Greene, after being pushed into Cummins' company, falls for her. Back in London after Livesey has recovered, a cocktail party is thrown where Livesey's bitter and drunk sister (Margaret Withers) spills the beans (but not her drink) about Loy's relationship with Greene and all hell breaks loose.

The four stars are quite good in this romantic drama, though the ending may be a bit of a stretch.
