This is Where Tired Old Story of Playing a Lover-being in love for real

How many times since this movie has that old plot been trotted out? Countless!

Shearer is always too "dramatic" for my liking and her cross eyed stare is distracting.

This positively infantile preoccupation with bosoms!Terry-Thomas about US 1963.Hasnt changed much!


She truly was a major drama queen in this. It seems like, in this film, she says something "dramatic," then starts to storm out of the room, then stops, pauses, and turns around to say something else about every 10 minutes.
