This was one wartime West End success that didn't transfer too well to screen, ending up embarrassingly stagey. The ever-reliable Gordon Harker and former silent star Betty Balfour are the crisis-stricken parents who have to cope with their daughter wanting a trial marriage and a son involved in a divorce suit between his girlfriend and her husband. Retitled The Facts of Love for American release, the film has nice supporting roles for Dinah Sheridan and a pre-Crossroads Noele Gordon.
