An amusing Victorian Sex Romp
11 May 2004 | by (Schaumburg, USA) – See all my reviews

I first saw this movie years ago in the 1980's under the title of "Victorian fantasies". Based loosely on the classic Victorian Erotic novel, "A man with a maid" it details the adventures of Jack, a young Victorian gent with over active hormones who sets out to woo and bed Alice, the lovely blonde Ministers daughter he meets in an art gallery. To this end he undergoes the tutelage of the madame of the local bordello, takes up photography (of the naughty variety), and purchases a large house which he converts into a private love nest. What follows next is a series of comic misadventures as he tries to seduce Alice with hypnotism, (He only succeeds in putting his butler under.), wine laced with aphrodisiac (His butler and her maid sample it first leading to the sight of the pair doing a slow striptease, then rolling on the floor together behind the back of the oblivious Alice as she sits at tea with Jack, who's hardpressed to conceal his reactions to the antics of the two servants.) A severe thunder storm gives Jack the chance to lure Alice into his secret room where he tries to subject her to his various seduction devices (Which all malfunction in hilarious fashion), then forces her to undress as he photographs the process. (Which leads to my single complaint about the film, as you only see her drop each garment at her feet rather then getting to see her remove her dress and all those delightful things Victorian woman wore as underwear!) while the maid and butler engage in their own hanky panky belowstairs. Not to reveal too much, but Jack gets more then he bargains for when Alice turns the tables on him and reveals the true hot blooded woman under her prim exterior. While by no means a "great" film, "My favorite Butler" still makes for an amusing little diversion.
