Dorothy Whipple film



I see that today Talking Pictures is showing a film (1945) based on Dorothy Whipple’s novel They Were Sisters. It’s a bleak book, about three marriages. The least fortunate sister has a bullying husband, played in the film by James Mason. I’ve no idea what this film is like but Whipple fans (count me one), may be interested.
