A Matter of Innocence Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Polly ([[Performer~P49382~Hayley Mills~hayleymills]]) is a shy young girl on a world tour with her impossible aunt ([[Performer~P17633~Brenda de Banzie~brendadebanzie]]). In Singapore, the ladies are entertained by their Eurasian guide ([[Performer~P36881~Shashi Kapoor~shashikapoor]]). Polly begins an affair with the seductive guide, and upon the death of her aunt she finally comes out of her shell to blossom into full womanhood. [[Performer~P86099~Noel Coward~noëlcoward]] had received some of the worst reviews in his life when he published the uncharacteristically bitter [[Feature~V106332~Pretty Polly and Other Stories;~pollyofthefollies]] the film version of Pretty Polly substitutes sentiment for cynicism, but isn't much of an improvement over the Coward original. The film is better known under its American title A Matter of Innocence. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
