Movie Info

Trapped in London due to the fog, lawyer Everard Logan (Laurence Olivier) grudgingly allows the use of his hotel sitting room by a stranded partygoer, Leslie Steele (Merle Oberon). Charmed by Leslie even after she tricks him into giving up his bedroom and pajamas, Everard becomes infatuated, despite his suspicion that she is married. When Lord Mere (Ralph Richardson) engages Everard to file for divorce against his wife, who met a man at the hotel, Everard fears he may be the "other" man.

Critic Reviews for The Divorce of Lady X

All Critics (3) | Fresh (3)

  • No directorial skill in the world could make the first ten minutes seem smooth and convincing or pretty Miss Oberon anything but an annoying pest. Once the point is made, however, the picture settles down to first-rate comedy.

    April 2, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A satisfying lightweight British screwball comedy.

    May 31, 2015 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • Though opulent in color costumes and design, this minor British screwball comedy is mostly known for its on-screen teaming of two young actors, Laurence Olivier and Ralph Richardson, in their pre-Hollywood era, who would become legendary stars.
