Synopsis:
Two eligible bachelors, Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff (Michael Denison), are in trouble. Jack's unworthy habit of representing himself as his imaginary brother Ernest (Michael Redgrave) and Algernon's adoption of an equally fictitious - and perpetually sickly -friend has allowed them both a latitude in their personal lives that they would otherwise have not enjoyed. Their respective deceptions start to unravel, however, when both chaps become mortally wounded by Cupid's arrow -setting up a series of events which will change their lives forever!

It's lovely to see this old film again after goodness knows how many years ... a great cast, just a pity about the very poor soundtrack.
