Richard Wattis in The Importance of Being Earnest

The Importance of Being Earnest

1952 NR

Oscar Wilde's delicious, penetrating wit shines through in this 1952 film adaptation of his famous play. Skillfully directed by Anthony Asquith, Wilde's turn-of-the-century social satire is a delightful, charming story of words and misunderstandings. Michael Redgrave and Michael Denison star as two men who escape social obligations by pretending to be someone they're not, often when its most inconvenient for the other. Joan Greenwood co-stars.
