Victoria Plucknett in The Duchess of Duke Street

The Duchess of Duke Street

1976 NR

Loosely based on the real-life proprietor of the Cavendish Hotel, this artful BBC costume drama set in early 1900s London stars Gemma Jones as Louisa Trotter, a kitchen maid whose looks and drive enable her to become a celebrated cook and hotelier. Trotter's liaison with Albert, Prince of Wales, launches her ascent in society, but she also faces a wealth of challenges and prejudices on her way toward gaining the upper-crust stature she seeks.
