STORM IN A TEACUP
1937, Cohen Film, 87 min, UK, Dir: Ian Dalrymple, Victor Saville

This Alexander Korda production has much of the charm the Ealing comedies would display 20 years later. After Scottish provost Cecil Parker condemns an old woman’s pet dog, reporter Rex Harrison (in his first leading role) pens an article that puts in hot water. Furious, the politician sues – but that’s not enough to stop his daughter (Vivien Leigh) from falling for the writer.
