Cluny Brown

Cluny Brown

Synopsis

Combining elegance and wit, Lubitsch's last film, set in 1938 London, is one of his most engaging romantic comedies. Jennifer Jones and Charles Boyer team up as the plumber's niece (later housemaid) and the intellectual Czech refugee, who throw English society into disarray with their disregard for conventions.

This charming satire, aided by a wonderful script taking in snobbery upstairs, downstairs and in the middle classes, is given a jolly run around by a cast comprising most of Hollywood's British stalwarts from Sir C. Aubrey Smith and Peter Lawford to Sara Allgood and Una O'Connor.
