Olga San Juan,
On New Year's Eve 1946, Sheila Page kills her husband Barney. She wishes that she could relive 1946 and avoid the mistakes that she made throughout the year. Her wish comes true but cheating fate proves more difficult than she anticipated.
London, 1783: Kitty, a saucy wench of the slums, meets the painter Gainsborough by stealing his shoes. He paints her as an "anonymous lady" who excites the interest of his noble friends, notably penniless Sir Hugh Marcy, who schemes to pass Kitty off as a genuine lady (a formidable task) and marry her off for financial gain. But Kitty has her own ideas about the uses of matrimony. Lots of decolletage.Written by

Thomas Gainsborough's painting, The Blue Boy, was bought in 1921 by American railroad pioneer Henry Edwards Huntington. It is now on display in the Huntington Library of San Marino, California. See more »
Delightful rags-to-riches romp with a Pygmalion theme
Amusing and witty story of a street girl (Paulette Goddard) in 18th century London, who rises to become a duchess.
Of particular note is Constance Collier, showing off a brilliant flare for comedy as Lady Susan Dowitt, an aging courtesan who instructs Goddard in matters of gentility. Constance had a long career on stage and screen going back to the silent era, and this film displays her talents as a fine comedienne.
