Vintage Film Review : The Adorable Absurdity of The Divorce of Lady X
Posted by Dixie-Ann Belle Oct 31, His future looks bright. He has infatuated ladies vying for his attentions. Even on a night when there is so much fog in London that cabs cannot take passengers home, he manages to find a room to himself in a crowded hotel. However, his happy existence takes an unexpected turn that foggy London night. There is a huge masquerade ball going on in the hotel, and the guests are stranded, unable to leave because of the lack of visibility.
The film was made in early three-strip Technicolor and is a remake of the film Counsel's Opinion , also from London Films and in which Binnie Barnes appeared in the role played by Merle Oberon. Leslie Steele, a guest at a ball at the Royal Park Hotel, is forced to stay overnight there because of thick London fog. As no rooms are available, Miss Steele talks her way into sharing a suite with Everard Logan, a handsome though somewhat stiff lawyer. All his efforts to oust her are to no avail and she even ends up talking him out of his pyjamas. The next morning, they have breakfast together. She tells him only her Christian name, Leslie; the night before she led him to believe she was married. He insists they must meet again.
