Quiet Wedding (1941) DVD-R

Be the first to review this product

Quick Overview

Starring Margaret Lockwood, Derek Farr, Marjorie Fielding, A.E. Matthews, Athene Seyler

Directed by Anthony Asquith



Print: Black and White

Runtime: 80 min.

Genre: Comedy



The old reliable plot device known as premarital hanky-panky was the basis of the Esther McCracken stage play Quiet Wedding. The film version, scripted by Terence Rattigan and Anton de Grunewald, tones down some of the more censorable elements of the play, though not enough to completely mollify American censors. Margaret Lockwood stars as bride-to-be Janet Royd, who is driven crazy by the well-meaning interference of friends and family in the hours prior to her wedding. Sensing that she'll never have a moment alone with her fiance Dallas Chaytor (Derek Farr) even after they're married. Janet agrees to slip away with Dallas the night before the Big Event for a few hours of uninterrupted bliss. Nothing much really happens, at least not on screen, but the censors weren't able to blot out the gleam in the groom's eye-or the bride's, for that matter.
