LADY CAROLINE LAMB
Directed by ROBERT BOLT Screenplay by ROBERT BOLT
This liberally embellished biography of a woman who played muse to the Romantic era cannot really be called good, but it certainly is funny. The question is whether Writer-Director Robert Bolt achieved the hilarity by design or accident. His previous film workfor example, the scripts for those David Lean dirigibles Doctor Zhivago and Ryan's Daughterhas been pretty stiff and sobersided; silly, perhaps, but politely so. Here, making his debut as a film director, Bolt comes off rather like a De Mille with a university degree.
Rather too reserved for camp, Lady Caroline Lamb...
