Summary
Set in England on the cusp of World War II, the final film by Ernst Lubitsch is a zany comedy of manners that sends up British class hierarchy with his famously light touch. Cluny Brown is an irrepressible heroine with a zeal for plumbing. Sent to work as a parlormaid at a stuffy country manor, she proceeds to turn the household upside down with plenty of help from Adam Belinski, an eccentric Continental exile who has fled the Nazis but is still worried about where his next meal is coming from
