Product Details

The story of three sisters who marry three very different men during the inter-war years, and their individual and widely varied married lives. Charlotte (Dulcie Gray), Lucy (Phyliss Calvert) and Vera (Anne Crawford) are three sisters who marry men of very diverse characters. Geoffrey (James Mason) is an ambitious businessman who marries Charlotte becuase he wants a submissive wife, however boredom with his marriage only increases his cruelty towards her. William (Peter Murray-Hill) is a dependable, kindly man who recognises in Lucy a kindred spirit. Vera is self-centred and views her marriage to Brian (Barry Livesey) as one of convenience allowing her to take lovers when she desires. As the years pass, the sisters' marriages encounter joy and sadness, but as Geoffrey behaviour towards Charlotte threatens her emotional stability, the sisters decide to unite, with tragic consequences.... Although set just before the war, the situations depicted in the film struck a powerful chord with audiences, who turned it into one of the biggest homegrown hits of 1945.
