This early Gainsborough flick is truly a lost treasure, and easily one of the most daring and risque films ever made. At least half a dozen different tales seem to be going on at once, all finally meeting in the end.

He’s trying to chat up Mimi so she’ll split up with her boyfriend as her boyfriend’s uncle has other plans for his nephew – alas what no one knows is that he and Mimi have already been married for a few months, on the sly! The best scenes in the movie were Mimi’s, if you like Anne Crawford you’ll like this actress, she’s a real gem.
