Overview

Synopsis

Men Are Not Gods
Something of a precursor to 1947's A Double Life, Men Are Not Gods takes its title from a line in Othello -- aptly so, as that play figures prominently in the film. Actress Barbara Halford (Gertrude Lawrence) is married to Edmond Davey (Sebastian Shaw), a classical actor whose new production of Othello is about to open. Aware that influential critic Skeates has written a vociferously negative review, Barbara pleads with his secretary Ann (Miriam Hopkins) to rewrite the notice. She does so, and the production becomes a hit - and Ann becomes a hit with Davey, which fact sits well with neither Barbara nor Ann's boy friend Rex Harrison. Barbara, who is also playing Desdemona in the production, warns Ann to keep her hands off of her husband. But that night, as Othello chokes Desdemona, it seems suspiciously real, prompting Ann to scream out in horror from the audience. Afterward, Barbara reveals that she is pregnant; as she and Davey embrace, Ann quietly exits from the scene. ~ Craig Butler, Rovi
