The Perfect Woman 1949

86 mins United Kingdom Director. Bernard Knowles

That age-old male fantasy of the ultimate remote-control woman gets a high-tech satirical twist in this screwball-style, battle-of-the-sexes comedy. Roger Cavendish gets more than he bargained for when he agrees to act as escort for the 'perfect' robot woman. The riotous climactic scene in a bridal suite is a delight, and glamorous star Patricia Roc has a ball running rings around the hapless men.

Digitisation supported by The Mohamed S. Farsi Foundation.
