1. "The Divorce of Lady X."
I must have that on videotape somewhere. In any event, I remember it as funny and (tastefully) sexy, the kind of comedy where the heroine drives the hero slowly insane, but in a good way. ;-)

2. How did have I missed this Merle Oberon - Laurence Olivier movie?
I love Wuthering Heights, and didn't know that there was another offering with the both of them! I'm DVR'ing it for sure! Thanks CBH for the heads-up!! :hi:
