    Divorce of Lady X (The)




    This light-hearted society comedy from the Alexander Korda Library features three great actors early in their careers: Korda’s wife-to-be Merle Oberon, Laurence Olivier, and Ralph Richardson. Adapted by Lajos Biró from the 1933 stage play Counsel’s Opinion, The Divorce of Lady X is a solidly produced ‘screwball whimsy’ in which Korda used an early threestrip Technicolor technique masterfully to give the film its particular lustre.

    The beautiful Leslie (Merle Oberon), a costume party guest, and handsome divorce lawyer Everard Logan (Laurence Olivier) find themselves stranded by fog in an already overcrowded hotel. Leslie’s solution is to commandeer Logan’s bedroom, relegating him to the sofa, eat his breakfast and sneak off leaving only a note: ‘Goodbye, Lady X’. The next day she overhears Logan making disparaging remarks about women in divorce cases and decides that with the aid of her friends Lord and Lady Mere (Ralph Richardson and Binnie Barnes) and an elaborate ruse, she will teach the misogynist a lesson...
