Production Notes:

  • Filmed in Italy and the UK.
  • Original running time was 101 minutes, instead of the video's 93 minutes.
  • Screened at London Film Festival, November 6, 1991.
  • An American version of "Enchanted April" was released in March of 1935. It was adapted by Samuel Hoffman and Ray Harris from a radio dramatization by Kane Campbell, which in turn was adapted from the novel by "Elizabeth." The film was directed by Harry Beaumont and starred Ann Harding, Frank Morgan, Katherine Alexander, and Reginald Owen. Variety characterized the film as "Very British in background and proceeding at all times with a lifted eyebrow, picture is little too snooty... the comedy... has a distinct flavor of sophistication, but had it been grounded in a weightier story, it would have gone leagues towards putting the plot over. The plot... cries for situations, dramatic conflict, and action. That never arrives, and the picture ends like a bedtime story for grownups, which puts you to sleep and is easily forgotten."
