Movie Info

Jane Broadbent (Sandra Dee) is an independent-minded teenager who moves to London to live with her aristocratic father, Jimmy (Rex Harrison), and stepmother, Sheila (Kay Kendall). Jimmy and Sheila insist that Jane attend a coming-out ball and try to marry into high society. However, Jane is uninterested in her potential suitors, including the stuck-up David Fenner (Peter Myers), and soon falls for David Parkson (John Saxon), an American drummer with a bad reputation.

Audience Reviews for The Reluctant Debutante

  • Mar 02, 2008
    Kay and Rex sparkle like the sun, hard to believe she was dying while this was being made. Angela Lansbury provides solid support and John Saxon and Sandra Dee made a handsome couple, but it is really Kay Kendall's movie all the way.
