Did She Remember She Had Amnesia?
1 January 2018 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

While daddy Basil Radford and Mummy Jeanne de Cassalis are flying off to Baghdad -- presumably to meet Naunton Wayne -- daughter Elizabeth Allan cracks under the pressure of exams and finds herself with amnesia. She is palmed off by Enid Stamp-Taylor as Muriel Aked's daughter, lest she steal fiance Ralph Michael.

It may have worked well enough as a novel, but I find it all very unlikely -- except the idea that anyone batty enough to marry Basil Radford would be happy to fly off to Baghdad for several months, forgetting she had a daughter. Everyone performs their roles well enough, and Miss Aked is quite amusing as a gradgrinding sort of raiser of funds in the name of good works, but the large number of coincidences and unlikely unlikable personalities that fool everyone but the audience wore out their welcome quickly.
