Jeanne is a milliner courted by aristocrats. She first has an affair with René, a young writer for Count du Barry. She then marries the Count in order to become Louis XV's mistress.
Allmovie described it as "standard historical-drama fare, allowing dozens of top European actors to play "dress-up" for 90 minutes"; while TV Guide noted "A rather stiff British production that is well done but not compelling," rating it 2/5 stars.
