In Victorian London, the frail poetess Elizabeth Barrett (Norma Shearer) lived a sheltered existence under the overly watchful eye of her controlling father (Charles Laughton). That changed after the poet Robert Browning (Fredric March) arranged an audience, and a mutual admiration blossomed into something more. Favorite historical romance co-stars Maureen O'Sullivan, Ian Wolfe, Una O'Connor. 110 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
