Guinevere Pettigrew, a middle-aged London governess, finds herself unfairly dismissed from her job. An attempt to gain new employment catapults her into the glamorous world and dizzying social whirl of an American actress and singer, Delysia Lafosse.
Beautiful middle ages period piece with well done costumes and sets
Several years ago I acquired a print of this film on 35MM nitrate stock. Recently I was able to have a telecine made of it on a Rank Cintel wetgate system. Finally I was able to view this piece of Italian cinema history. Not speaking Italian, I have not yet been able to get the details of the story other than it is a tragic story of love that was not meant to be. It is set in the 1300's amid a rich tapestry of castles and costumes. Fortunately the print is in near mint condition so that once I can get it subtitled, it will be released for the world to see. One more classic film rescued from the dust of time.
