Full movie description "The Imperfect Lady":Millicent Hopkins, while touring with a dancing troupe in 1892, meets Clive Loring who is campaigning in the English Midlands for Parliament. They fall in love and Millie remains behind at the home of her father while her friend, Rose Bridges and the rest of the company go to London. Lord Belmont, Clive's older brother, tells Millie that a marriage below Clive's station will jeopardize his future happiness. She resolves to drop out of his life and, without telling him, rejoins the troupe at the Empire Theatre. Mille and Rose, leaving the theatre without removing their makeup, are stopped and questioned by a bobby. They flee and Millie takes refuge in the rooms of a sympathetic stranger, Jose Martinez, a Spanish concert pianist, where she remains most of the night. The next morning, a Scotland Yard Inspector arrives and arrests Martinez.
Reviews of the The Imperfect LadyI was hoping for a better film here, starting promising but not moving into the direction I hope it was heading. Teresa Wright is a lower class British girl, estranged from puritanical father Reginald Owen who has a job in a music hall show but longs for a life of respectability. Along with friend Virginia Field, she maneuvers an invitation for "tea" from an upper class gentleman (Ray Milland) whom she overhears giving a liberal political speech. One night hiding from the police hiding out in the flat of pianist Anthony Quinn comes back to haunt her after she marries Milland and Quinn is put on trial for murder. Wright becomes a major witness in the defense, and ultimately a "lady of scandal".
While handsome and well photographed, this bland drama is filled with a ton of plot holes and is often dull and humorless. I was hoping that Wright's low class girl would become a Margaret Lockwood like schemer, but she's unfortunately not all that interesting. Character actors Cedric Hardwicke and Melville Cooper are good in supporting roles, but the set-up for Milland's rising politician is never realized after a great start. Quinn has the potential of being the most interesting character, but most of the plot holes end up pulling his character into the abyss.
What appears to be an arty film in concept is sadly a near misfire, dry and dull in spite of great potential. That explains why this is rather obscure today, and while Wright was hot at the time, she seems shoved into this because Paulette Goddard was not available. It's professionally put together, but lackluster direction by Lewis Allen (who only directed a tiny number of memorable films) seems to be the main issue.
