Plot Summary

When Viola and her twin brother Sebastian are shipwrecked and separated, Viola dresses in her brother's clothes and becomes a page in the palace of the Duke of Orsino. Thinking Viola is a boy, the Duke sends her with a message to Olivia, whom he loves. A series of complications begins when Olivia falls in love with the page boy.


Critics' reviews

Walter Kerr New York Herald Tribune
"Miss Hepburn has always been one of the most fetching creatures to have been bestowed upon our time, and fetching isn't half of it as the lady takes a stubborn, or a petulant, or a slightly fearful stance in her white ducks, brass-buttoned jacket, and sleek black boater."
