English Love in Six Lessons

Papa was a preacher and as a youngster I overheard many conversations that were beyond my understanding, and the more I didn't understand, the more I remembered. I can vividly remember a conversation with someone who was trying mightily to convince my father that he had discovered the Anti-Christ . . . The Devil Himself come to earth to destroy mankind. He was talking about the creation of an organization so evil that it would bring this world to a quick end within a few years if not sooner. He was talking about the creation of the United Nations, the successor to the League of Nations. The League of Nations was an attempt after World War I to get different countries to talk with each other instead of going to war over misunderstandings. This comic love story begins with a League of Nations meeting in Switzerland before World War II. The opening statement from each nation is a few words of fluff saying nothing, until Margaret Rutherford, as Lady Cristabel Beauclerk stands and starts demanding territory, sanctuary and protection for . . . endangered birds! The people from the other European nations do not understand what she is demanding and believe that she is hinting at some sort of devious British plot to take over the world. At this point you need to know that Lady Beauclerk has a butler named Tom Gilbey, played by Michael Wilding, and a niece named Joan, played by Penelope Dudley-Ward, and they are the love couple that will fall into and out of love with each other until it is too late for both of them. Ok, now back to the adventure . . . . A foreign person thinks that the Lady's butler is actually a British spy with the information about their plans, and he hires a beautiful lady translator at the meeting to go out with the butler and seduce him into telling her all about the devious British plot. Of course there is no devious British plot, but while she is wooing the butler, Joan the niece sees the butler and the other girl and is furious, but becomes even more convinced that Gilbey the butler is her one and only true love. While she is thinking lovingly about Gilbey, a French author and a Polish artist are avidly after her affections. This leads to that and when World War II begins Gilbey goes off to fight and as he is leaving for the war Joan builds up the confidence to tell him that she loves him deeply. Unfortunately he has never looked at her in that way and convinces her that because of their different stations in life it would be an impossible love. He goes off to war and Joan nurses the rejection from the man of her dreams. This leads to that again . . . . Many deliciously funny and ironic events ensue . . . . And when Gilbey comes home for a visit he has decided that he does indeed love Joan, and they should give it a go . . . . Well, . . . . Now Joan is deeply involved with teaching refugees from war torn Europe to speak English . . . . Including the two fellows who were after her affections at the Swiss conference . . . . And when Gilbey tells Joan that he now loves her . . . . She insists that she no longer loves him . . . She has outgrown her silly love for the butler . . . . This happy ending will not be quick or easy . . . . But it will be enjoyable and highly entertaining . . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
