Is there anybody there . . . who doesn’t love Noel Coward!?
Verified purchase
This is an old favourite of mine. It combines the wit of Noel Coward with the eccentricity of Margaret Rutherford - what’s not to love.

Always a classic a must watch.

Brilliant ⭐ This original film which was written and produced by the genius Noel Coward is an all time classic and although made in 1945 will always be the best, knocking spots off the 2020 remake.
Noel Coward forever ❤️

Excellently Restored, Excellent Film!
Verified purchase
This is for me the definitive version of this story. I was really impressed by how the film has been digitally restored, with great colour, without being too vivid. An excellent film, I think, with an excellent cast. Brilliant!

Can't beat the original

What is not to like with a Noel Coward, slick, sparky, dynamic script.
The recent remake is fun but nothing compares to the original movie. Holds up to this day.

If you have not seen the original film version of this play, you should. Margaret Rutherford in splendid form. I enjoyed every second.

Film classic beautifully remastered
Verified purchase
A lovely film adaptation of the classic Noel Coward play, with a little ‘artistic licence’ at the end, but it still works.

Only one word brilliant

To be honest I didnt find anything not to like. Superb plot and brilliant acting. Margaret Rutherford as Madam Arcarti was superbly hilarious.
