NotesWhat this film has going for it is the exquisite Leslie Caron and the erudite George Bernard Shaw, not to mention Alastair Sim. I've most of GBS including his early novels but so long ago I can't remember the play this film was based on. If you haven't heard of GBS which is quite likely he wrote Pymalion on which My Fair Lady is based. Here Caron is married to a ne'er-do-well who has tuberculosis and she has problems trying to get medical consultants to consider treating him. Shaw couldn't write anything which wasn't philosophically challenging and this is really about ethics and human values.
