Fallen Women? Does it mean they've hurt their knees? After a decade of soul saving in Africa, Charles Fortescue is asked to minister to the ladies of the night in 1906 London. So Fortescue feeds them, shelters them and not infrequently provides them a bed - his!
A naive man of the cloth becomes a man of the sheets in this playfully naughty yet always tasteful comedy that stars Monty Python's Michael Palin as Fortescue and features a colourful array of cockeyed characters: a blissful airhead (Phoebe Nicholls), a lusty mission sponsor (Maggie Smith), a bewildered butler (Michael Hordern), an earthy bishop (Denholm Elliott), a cantankerous John Bull (Trevor Howard) and more. Jolly good fun.
