Fun Size Review: The School for Scandal (1923)

A British adaptation of an eighteenth century play with powdered wigs and lace cravats aplenty. Oh, and a very young Basil Rathbone as the resident cad, bounder and rogue.

The complete film is not available but the condensation that I have seen is tantalizing, for the costumes if nothing else.

How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.

No sugar for Baz.

If it were a dessert it would be: Petit Fours. Almost too pretty to eat. Almost.
