A Lady Mislaid is a 1958 British comedy film directed by David MacDonald and starring Phyllis Calvert, Alan White and Thorley Walters.[1] It is based on a 1948 play of the same name by Kenneth Horne.[2]


Esther, (Phyllis Calvert), and her sister Jennifer, (Gillian Owen), are spinsters. Esther has bought a remote country cottage, and has invited her novelist sister to stay for recuperation. Esther hasn't told Jennifer that a policeman, (Alan White), had called, earlier, had explained that that the police wanted to search the house and gardens for the body of the former owner's wife, and that she'd agreed. When a human skeleton is unearthed in the chicken coup, the finger of suspicion points firmly at the previous occupant, Mr. Smith (Thorley Walters).


Critical reception

The Radio Times gave the film two out of five stars, and wrote, "A quaint idea and a decent cast make perfectly respectable entertainment out of an hour-long British programmer, but there's not much more to be said for it."[3]
