English Without Tears (1944) DVD-R

Quick Overview

Starring Michael Wilding, Penelope Dudley-Ward, Lilli Palmer, Claude

Dauphin, Albert Lieven, Peggy Cummins, Margaret Rutherford

Directed by Harold French



Print: black/white

Runtime: 89 min.

Genre: comedy

Print Quality: B



English without Tears is a gentle satire of the temporary relaxation of

class barriers in wartime England. Michael Wilding portrays the faithful

family butler to a fabulously wealthy household. Each member of the

family greets the news of upcoming world conflict with a different

reaction, the most altruistic of which is that of the daughter (Penelope

Dudley Ward), who joins the home service. When the butler rises to the

army rank of lieutenant, the daughter sees him in a whole new light and

falls in love with her onetime employee. There's little in this frivolous film

that hasn't been done elsewhere, except perhaps for the opening-scene

romantic complications in Geneva, which set the stage for the film's

finale. English without Tears was released in the US in 1948 as Her Man

Gilbey.
