It is early 1939 in Poland when Mrs. Bromley and Jennifer come to buy antiques for her business in London. Jennifer meets Count Stephen and they wine, dine and see the sights though out the city. He wishes to marry, but his family is against plain Jennifer. When she tries to leave, he catches her at the train station and they are married. To be self sufficient, they modernize the family farm with tractors and increase production, but then Germany starts the war. Written by

At the ballet, Count Stefan and others in his box use the opera glasses to look down at Jennifer in the audience below. The first shot through the glasses shows her not looking straight up at Count Stefan, but to her right, even though they have acknowledged each other. In subsequent shots through the glasses, the perspectives are far too low and to the front of Jennifer to be from the box above. See more
