The Enchanted Cottage

  • Film

Time Out says

Icky romantic whimsy adapted from Pinero's play about a honeymoon cottage which waves the magic wand of love to transform a pair of uglies into an ideal couple. Full of sanctimonious guff, and not made any more palatable by the glamour convention whereby Young's war wounds give him Frankensteinian facial scars (nobody thinks of plastic surgery) while McGuire's blemishes just need a touch of the hairdos to set right. Ted Tetzlaff's clean camerawork comes out of it with distinction, but Herbert Marshall (as the blind pianist who composes a tone poem to the lovers) wins the yuk of the year award.
