A Bill of Divorcement is a 1940 film directed by John Farrow. It was also known as Never to Love and was based on a 1921 British play of the same name, written by Clemence Dane that was filmed in 1932 with John Barrymore and Katharine Hepburn.


Hilary Fairchild (Adolphe Menjou) returns home after a long spell in a lunatic asylum. He has regained his sanity, but finds that his strong-willed daughter Sydney (Maureen O’Hara ) has grown up and is planning to marry and his wife (Fay Bainter) has divorced him.



The film was announced in November 1939 with the lead roles allocated to Adolphe Menjou and Maureen O'Hara. O'Hara had just moved to Hollywood with Charles Laughton and appeared in The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Producer Robert Sisk and director John Farrow had made a number of films together including the popular Five Came Back (1939).[1] It was considered an "A" picture – Farrow and Sisk's first such movie at RKO.[2]

Filming started 2 December 1939.[3][4]


The film recorded a loss of $104,000.[5]
