Fascination 1931 A stagey romantic style of film, that would not set the world on fire. A couple that have been married for three years have a difficult time when he falls in love with another woman. The wife confronts the other woman and offers to share her husband. This does not suit, and probably shocked some of the film critics with its implications at the time, the woman tells the man their affair is over. Cast include; Dorothy Bartlam, Carl Harbord and Madeleine Carroll. Released by Wardour Films
