Directed by Mitchell Leisen
Set in 18th century London, a profligate nobleman grooms a beautiful Cockney pickpocket to marry into society as a lady. Leisen’s ornately rendered take on Pygmalion stars Ray Milland and Paulette Goddard as blithely amoral accomplices whose wildly successful arrangement grows ever more complicated as she falls for him and he seems incapable of seeing past her origins.
