    History Is Made at Night

    ★★★½

    A nice romance with some great characters.  An unscrupulous, jealous rich man wants to keep his wife from divorcing him.  The wife never loved him but finds love while trying to get out of her situation. The acting was great, as was the disaster scenes towards the end.  The chemistry between Paul and Mrs Vail was lovely, but I kind of wanted more of Paul and Cesare being adorable buddies.
