1940s British, black & white drama starring filmic darlings Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh. After Larry Darrent (Olivier) accidentally kills his lover's blackmailing husband, someone else is arrested for the crime. When he is found guilty, Larry and his girlfriend Wanda (Leigh) have just three weeks together before he must give himself up or let an innocent man go to the gallows. The script for this film was written by Graham Greene

It's not a bad little story, but doesn't quite come off, despite good performances from its stars and the supporting cast including Francis L Sullivan and Robert Newton (both in very small roles, sadly.) Alexander Korda reputedly interfered continually, so perhaps this was the problem. Although filmed in 1937 and 1938, it wasn't released until 1940 to capitalise on Leigh's rise to international fame in Gone With The Wind.Read more ›
When Larry Durrant (Olivier) accidentally kills his lover's husband, he decides to hide his crime and the couple embark on a whirlwind romance for the next twenty one days. However, with an innocent dupe on trial for the murder, Durrant's conscience begins to get the better of him.
If it didn't feature Olivier and Leigh then this would have been consigned to the forgotten bin and sealed up post haste. That the stars give it a curiosity value is a given, but one peak at the meagre back story backs up the fact that it really is rather a dull movie. Film was wrapped in 1938 but sat on the shelf for two years and was only released once Olivier and Leigh became big names in 1940. The two stars were more interested in playing footsie under the table than putting any acting depth into the production, something which greatly annoyed director Dean as he was trying to make a gripping crime drama. In fact Viv and Larry were so unhappy with how the film ended up, they reportedly walked out of a screening of it at the halfway point!
Picture is clearly meant to be a scathing observation on the folly of criminal law, wrapped around a male protagonist battling his moral codes as his heart goes pitter patter for a dame. Yet the picture rarely reaches dramatic heights, playing out more as a movie about young lovers inconvenienced by an accident, than one about a cruel twist of fate so pay your penance you loser.Read more ›
