Movie Info

Suspecting his wife of adultery, the male half of a famous acting team impersonates a charming Russian, seducing his own mate, who may or may not recognize his masquerade. This only starring film turn for theatrical duo Alfred Lunt and Lynne Fontanne was a static rendering of Ferenc Molnar's stageplay.

Audience Reviews for The Guardsman


Not a lot of love for this film by reviewers but I thought it was a cute tale of a man who disguises his identity presumably to catch his cheating wife. Perhaps it is a bit dated but it is charming in its own way.
