Warning To Wantons

...the not undeserved but awful fate which befell a minx!

Featuring an early role for accomplished French actress Anne Vernon alongside Mary Poppins star David Tomlinson, this effervescent comedy charts the romantic adventures of a young woman who swaps her strict convent school for the heady pleasures of high society.

Also featuring typically charismatic turns from Harold Warrender and Ellen Pollock among others, Warning To Wantons adapts Mary Mitchell's 1934 novel of the same title and is co-written by noted art historian (and V&A curator) James Laver; it is featured here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

Seventeen-year-old Renee slips away from her convent school, joins her fashionable mother and launches herself into Society with one aim: to conquer the hearts of all the men she encounters. Attending the wedding of Maria and Max, she sets her sights on the bridegroom-to-be, and after some expert calculation and manipulation, he soon falls under her spell... but his fiancée isn't giving up without a fight!
