CGiii Comment

Shaw won the Oscar for the writing...

Perhaps the beauty behind this film is solely down to Asquith - a man of privilege, an alcoholic and firmly in the closet...his father was Prime Minister.

So...he certainly knew how to hide behind a facade, how to create a different character.

A shining film of the age...all manners, subterfuge and prejudice.
