Elsie Randolph in a Black Comedy
1 April 2020 | by drednmSee all my reviews

Neat little black comedy about a lonely man (Jack McNaughton) who marries the wrong woman.

As Rose (Vida Hope) comes out of a church crying, we assume she's at a funeral. Rather, it McNaughton's wedding to Doris (Elsie Randolph). Bystanders gossip about why on earth he married Doris, a sour widow who lives on a widow's pension. We soon find out just how big a mistake this was.

As soon as he moves into Doris' flat, she starts nagging and complaining. She hoards his earnings and lies about how she spends money and what she does while he's at work. When her mother and sister come to visit, he learns just how common Doris really is, despite her airs.

After two years of this domestic misery, there's a knock on the door that leads to a surprise (and very welcomed) ending.

Randolph and McNaughton are excellent. Cast also includes Geoffrey Keen as Bill, Marie Ault as the mother, Helen Goss as the sister, Sam Kydd as the barrow boy, Mavis Villiers as Shirley, and Violet Gould and Eileen Way as the gossipers.
