The Divorce of Lady X (1938)

Merle Oberon, Laurence Olivier
Tim Whelan
Comedy, Drama, Romance
With a grade-A cast led by the legendary dream team of Merle Oberon and Laurence Olivier (before he was “sir”), stylish direction by Tim Whelan (“The Thief of Baghdad”) and the highly capable production hand of the legendary Alexander Korda, “The Divorce of Lady X” is a film lover’s dream come true. Witty and charming, the film tells the story of a handsome divorce lawyer (Olivier) who shares a suite one night with an alluring guest at a costume party (Oberon), only to discover that she may be the erring wife of his new client.
