Wilde`s comedy masterpiece
Certificate: U
Running Time: 93 mins
Retail Price: £9.99
Release Date:

Hallowed British film-maker Anthony Asquith adapted and directed this stunning film version of Wilde`s comedy masterpiece.

Redgrave and Denison are the two wealthy and eligible bachelors who each have to pose as someone else in order to win the hands of the genteel young ladies they adore, beautifully played by Joan Greenwood and Dorothy Tutin.

The famous `handbag` scene - featuring the legendary performance of Edith Evans as Lady Bracknell - is just one of the many gloriously witty moments.
