The Millionairess

1960

Anthony Asquith
Director

Studio

Arrogant heiress Loren falls for socialist doctor Sellers, who is impervious to her charms. She is unwilling to give up, though.

A pretty poor film, looselly adapted from George Bernard Shaw’s 1936 play of the same name. Loren never looked better, but her character is odious, and there is zero chemistry between her and Sellers. Sim tries his best to give the film some verve, though to little avail. it appears the filmmakers knew they had a poor effort on their hands, as Sophia loses her clothes more often than Jane did in her adventures. One expects much better from the talent involved.

Thanks to Philly for identifying/clarifying some uncredited extras!
