The Importance Of Being Earnest (1952)

synopsis


This star-studded version of Oscar Wilde's classic comedy is full of charm and remains the definitive version of his work. Jack Worthing (Michael Redgrave) and Algernon Moncrieff (Michael Denison) are two wealthy bachelors in love. Jack is in love with Gwendelon Fairfax (Joan Greenwood) and Algernon is drawn to Jack's ward, Cecily (Dorothy Tutin). Complications arise through Jack's habit of presenting himself as Ernest, his imaginary brother, and Algernon's use of the name to simplify deceitful courtships. Each girl, therefore, believes she's engaged to Ernest, who doesn't exist. Enter Gwendolen's mother, the formidable Lady Bracknell (Edith Evans); the eccentric companion Miss Prism (Margaret Rutherford) and her suitor Canon Chasuble (Miles Malleson) and matters become even more complicated and delightfully hilarious.
