The Divorce of Lady X

"A gay and urbane comedy, jauntily played by a British cast. There is more to the performances than simply a dutiful fulfillment of the script's requirements. Laurence Olivier, last encountered in the adventurous service of Queen Elizabeth when Fire Over England was smouldering, has an engaging inability to defend masculine integrity against the feminine foe. Ralph Ridhardson, whom you may recall as the huffing, puffing dictator of Things To Come, makes the sort of beef eating, slow-burning clubman it is always a pleasure to meet across the protective barrier of the screen."

The New York Times, April 1, 1938
