On Approval 1944

80 mins United Kingdom Director. Clive Brook

Splendid lead performances and a drily witty script are what make this adaptation of the Frederick Lonsdale play such a delight. A Victorian society belle plans on putting her beau to the test as a suitable husband - she just doesn't expect his best friend and a pickle heiress to turn up at her Scottish retreat as well. Clive Brook, Beatrice Lillie, Googie Withers and Roland Culver shine in this elegantly realised comedy of manners.
