Storyline

Fran Fine, a whiny, nasal-voiced Jewish woman from Flushing, New York, has just been fired from her job and abandoned by her boyfriend. She ends up selling cosmetics in Manhattan. This takes her to the home of Maxwell Sheffield, a rich, widowed English Broadway producer. She is mistaken to be applying for the job of nanny to Maxwell's three children and is hired for that purpose. She becomes quite attached to the children, Maggie, Brighton, and Grace, and becomes great friends with the butler, Niles. There is sexual tension between her and Mr. Sheffield, which is complicated by the fact that his business partner, C.C. Babcock, likes him. Written by Anonymous

When people are leaving through the inner front door, they often turn right (exiting the stage) rather than going through the outer front doors. While not noticeable from side views of people leaving, his flaw can be seen from shots behind the characters as they leave. See more »

Quotes

C.C.: Oh, it is so pathetic, Nanny Fine thinking she could win a kissing contest. I mean kissing is an art, it has to be sensuous, deeply felt, and most of all, spontaneous.
[C.C. kisses Niles]
Niles: Was it as bad for you as it was for me?

Last Of The Female Comedians
6 August 2003 | by (Manitoba, Canada) – See all my reviews

This was a good show. Funny, sometimes a little immature or

vulgar, but overall quite good. Has anyone else noticed that since

the late '90s there have been almost no shows that have a woman

as the main charactar? (Ellen was another) Most shows today are

family shows that revolve around the husband or father. I think this

was one of the last lady shows. I used to love Fran Fine's outfits!

The wardrobe people really knew what they were doing with her.
