The Admirable Crichton is a comic stage play written in 1902 by J. M. Barrie. The play deals with serious class issues that were controversial at the time but does not seriously question the status quo. [wiki]

The play was the basis for Lewis Gilbert's 1957 British comedy film starring Kenneth More, Diane Cilento, Cecil Parker, and Sally Ann Howes along with numerous Television, Radio and Stage productions. [wiki]
