The Madwoman of Chaillot
Academy Award winner Katharine Hepburn heads an all-star cast in a zany scheme to save the world from sanity, a plot led by The Madwoman of Chaillot. In the the Paris of superjets, nuclear bombs and high living, the Countess Aurelia, known as the Madwoman of Chaillot (Hepburn), lives in the past--in a state of genteel decay--oblivious of the 20th century. Her great concerns are the loss (years ago) of her lover and of her feathered boa, purple and nine feet long. But now she enlists the aid of three cronies to defeat the dehumanizing Establishment and rid the world of evil.Based on the play by Jean Giraudoux.
