Radio review – SGP – “Mr and Mrs Smith” (1942) **

Neither Errol Flynn nor Lana Turner were known for their comedy skills, but both scrub up well enough here, Errol in particular. It’s not the strongest material, even though from Norman Krasna – a married couple find out they’re not really married and they wind up squabbling, helped along by a friend of Errol’s who’s always wanted Mr Smith. Even at only half an hour it feels long going at times; Errol really tries – I’ve found myself saying that a lot about his comedies. It’s a back handed compliment – but still a compliment.
