The Soldier and the Lady

“The attractive young Duchess of a Ruritanian state is married to an elderly Duke whose chances of becoming a proud father are precisely nil. This fact weighs heavily with the Court officials, who propound a scheme to produce an heir and thereby save much political trouble. They find a young captain who fills the bill, but who does not agree readily … It is all colourful and diverting, with some good comedy situations and wit.” – The Stage, 3rd June 1954
