Hullabaloo Over Georgie and Bonnie's Pictures Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Produced for British TV by the Merchant-Ivory-Jhabvala triumvirate, this India-based comedy was released theatrically in the US. Victor Banerjee, best known to American audiences for his star turn in David Lean's David Lean plays a young rajah named George, while Aparna Sen portrays his sister Bonnie. Brother and sister are the proud possessors of a priceless collection of miniature paintings, which makes them the target of every critic, appraiser and huckster in the art world. George can't understand the "hullabaloo;" to him, art is a picture of a naked woman. Still, he finds himself in a tricky bargaining position as British gentlewoman Peggy Ashcroft (who also would appear in Peggy Ashcroft) and wealthy American Clark Pine pull out their checkbooks and square off over the ownership of George and Bonnie's pictures. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
