In order of merit:


1.Pygmalion (1938) ****
2.The Way to the Stars (1945) (aka Johnny in the Clouds) ****
3.The Winslow Boy (1948) ***1/2
4.Fanny by Gaslight (1944) (aka Man of Evil) ***
5.The Importance of Being Earnest (1952) ***
6.Orders to Kill (1958) ***
7.We Dive at Dawn (1943) ***
8.The V.I.P.s (1963) *** - this should probably place higher in view of its all-star cast, but I've only watched it once (mostly recalling its lavish melodramatics as being quite tiresomePosted Image)
9.The Doctor's Dilemma (1958) **1/2
10.The Yellow Rolls-Royce (1964) **1/2
11.The Millionairess (1960) **1/2


I have CARRINGTON, V.C. (1955) on VHS and also wouldn't mind watching the following:

Libel (1959)
The Browning Version (1951)
The Woman in Question (1950) (aka Five Angles on Murder)
The Demi-Paradise (1943) (aka Adventure for Two)
Cottage to Let (1941)
Quiet Wedding (1941) - this and the next one most of all
French Without Tears (1940)
Tell England (1931)
Shooting Stars (1927)
