This film, “The Imperfect Lady,” took place in 1892; it was quite scandalous for a woman to pursue a career as a Showgirl. In those days, a showgirl was intended to display the performer’s physical attributes (think of a stripper) to a paying audience. But these showgirls are not taking their clothes off, as it was still the 1800s. Teresa Wright character falls in love with a politician (played by Ray Milland) but is worried about how her “scandalous” past career as a showgirl will affect his career. One night while still in her stage make-up, she is mistaken for a prostitute! How will she explain all this to the man she loves?
