The Fan

The Fan

Synopsis

After many years abroad, Mrs Erlynne returns to a London much changed by the ravages of war. Whilst at an auction she recognizes an attractive fan which once belonged to her – but before she can claim it she must find another party to vouch for her. Seeking out Lord Darlington, her only acquaintance left remaining in London, the pair soon begins a journey of memory, love, loss and sacrifice.

Featuring George Sanders, Madeleine Carroll and Jeanne Crain and co-adapted by the legendary Dorothy Parker, Otto Preminger's 1949 version of Oscar Wilde's Lady Windermere's Fan is a classic comedy of manners that sparkles with wit as befitting the great playwright.
