‘Cluny Brown’ Plot Summary
Ernst Lubistch’s last film production Cluny Brown is a charming satire and a non-conformists delight. Cluny (Jennifer Jones), a plumber’s niece who “doesn’t know her place,” meets Adam Belinksi (Charles Boyer) while unclogging the sink of a dull Englishman. Belinksi, a Czech philosopher with a con man’s rhetoric, encourages Cluny to make her own place in the world! To “feed squirrels to the nuts,” so to speak. Unfortunately for Cluny, she is sent to work as a maid at a stuffy country manor, where her outspoken and cheerfully undisciplined manner do not belong. Belinski arrives at the manor as a refugee guest hiding from the Nazis, and the two misfit characters make a pact to not fall in love.
