All Critics (1)

The talented film-maker turns a marvelously raw play into a mediocre drawing room comedy.

Audience Reviews for Ideal Husband

½

Enjoyable oldie with some gorgeous sets and gowns. Goddard is very campy as Mrs Cheveley and supported by stellar British cast.

Paulette enjoys her role as the dastardly Mrs. Cheveley, Glynis Johns is a droll delight as Mabel and Constance Collier very funny as Lady Markby but everybody else is rather stiff. Still a good adaptation of the Wilde comedy of manners.
