In Deauville, the newspaper headline announcing the outbreak of the war incorrectly states, "Archduke Francis Joseph" had been assassinated in Sarajevo. Francis (Franz) Joseph was the reigning Austrian emperor and was not most certainly not assassinated. His nephew and heir to the empire, Francis (Franz) Ferdinand was assassinated. See more »
Shirley Maclaine is wonderful as the late older version of Coco Chanel who sets out again to prove her art as one of the finest fashion designers of ladies' fashions and perfume in the world. Barbara Borovona is also wonderful as the younger version of Coco Chanel who rises despite tragedy, hardship, and success. In this film, there are flashbacks and wonderfully done to show Coco's rise from a seamstress assistant to her own visionary. Malcolm McDowell (he deserves knighthood or something) is fine as Coco's business partner. I don't recall the names of the other cast members but they were all fine. I could see why Coco Chanel succeeded even in a male dominated business field at the time of ladies' fashion. Coco understood women being one herself and how clothes should be expressed and comfortable as well. It should be the men who get to be comfortable, women should be too.
