Time Out says

Colman is a shell-shocked WWI amnesiac who meets and marries music hall singer Garson; a collision with a taxi makes him forget he's married to her and return to his pedigreed family background; but she becomes his secretary, and eventually another shock...Eclipsed at the time only by the adjacent Garson-starring Mrs Miniver for both tosh-value and box-office receipts, this remarkably contrived delve into the here-today-gone-tomorrow memory of lovelorn Colman drew from critic James Agee the oft-quoted but irresistible line: 'I would like to recommend this film to those who can stay interested in Ronald Colman's amnesia for two hours and who could with pleasure eat a bowl of Yardley's shaving soap for breakfast'. Of course, you get froth both ways, but it doesn't taste that bad.
