Movie Info

Directed by Ian Dalrymple, this comedy of manners is based on a German play, and is one of the lesser known pieces of Vivien Leigh and Rex Harrison's filmographies. Set in an old-fashioned Scottish town, Storm in a Teacup features Rex Harrison as an English newpaper reporter who has traveled north in order to take a job. Once there, he meets Victoria (Leigh), the daughter of Provost Gow (Cecil Parker), who happens to be one of the wealthiest legal figures in town. It isn't until he come across an an impoverished woman and her beloved dog, however, that life becomes truly complicated. When Mrs. Hegarty (Sara Allgood) can't afford to pay her annual dog licensing fee, Leigh's father orders the dog be destroyed. Frank (Harrison) turns this into a human interest story, which rapidly travels across Scotland. With his political career in shambles, Gow (Parker) retaliates by suing Frank for slander. Victoria, however, has fallen in love with the young journalist, and gives both Frank and her father quite a surprise when she lies for him in her testimony. In doing so, Victoria unwittingly determines the fate for both her lover and the dog, Scruffy. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovimore

Audience Reviews for Storm in a Teacup

Aptly titled little bit of silliness with winning performances from its cast of future stars.
