Legendary actress, Faye Dunaway (Network, Bonnie & Clyde) looking delectable in her 17th Century wardrobe, stars as Lady Barbara Skelton, a beautiful English socialite who finds her life extremely dull in spite of being married to a rich man (Denholm Elliot, Trading Places). In order to escape her banal existence, Barbara begins an affair with a miscreant criminal, Jackson (Alan Bates, Women in Love), and together they enter into a life of crime - specifically, highway robbery. As Barbara masquerades as a bandit by day, she must uphold her duties in the social hierarchy by night. A remake of the 1945 classic, The Wicked Lady is a bold foray into deviance. Director Michael Winner (Firepower, Death Wish I, II & III) has even gone so far to include an erotic whipping scene between Dunaway and Marina Sirtis (Commander Deanna Troi of TV's Star Trek: The Next Generation). The wonderful supporting cast includes Sir John Gielgud (Arthur), Prunella Scales (Howard's End), Oliver Tobias (The Stud) and Glynis Barber (Edge of Sanity).
