This modern "Flying Dutchman" story stars actor/playwright Noel Coward as a class-A heel. Coward uses his position as a powerful publisher to break as many hearts as is humanly possible. When he does his usual hatchet job on poet Julie Haydon, she plants a curse on his head.

Critic Reviews for The Scoundrel

All Critics (3)

Hecht, MacArthur, and Noel Coward proving themselves cleverer than any other three people in the world, to their own satisfaction.

There is very little action, but what there is, especially in the latter sequences, is likely to raise your hair rather queerly on your scalp.

In this film smoking saves lives.
