London, 1783: Kitty, a saucy wench of the slums, meets the painter Gainsborough by stealing his shoes. He paints her as an "anonymous lady" who excites the interest of his noble friends, notably penniless Sir Hugh Marcy, who schemes to pass Kitty off as a genuine lady (a formidable task) and marry her off for financial gain. But Kitty has her own ideas about the uses of matrimony. Lots of decolletage. Written by

Lady Susan Dowitt:
One of the most important accomplishments of the modern young woman is the use of the fan. She does not employ it to cool herself, but rather to express the emotions.

Some 20 years ago, I left my VCR recording late at night, there used to be good movies on TV at 3 or 4 a.m. I expected to enjoy the movie, but I didn't know it was going to be the movie of my life! I just love it! I kept the VHS for years, unfortunately, I moved and I lost it. I still hope some day we'll get a DVD edition for it would be a pity such an excellent movie could fall into oblivion without letting everybody enjoy it. I particularly enjoyed seeing the evolution of Paulette, she goes from a guttersnipe to a lady and the transformation is perfect.."she's become that lady"..and she really had.. "Love a duck me pearls!" "Sir, a joke is never as funny the second time".
