Summary Portrays the acclaimed British actress and courtesan Lillie Langtry from the blush of youth to the blight of old age. At a time when society expected women to be docile and demure, Lillie posed for celebrity endorsements, conducted her own business affairs, and paid her first husband to keep his distance. Even more scandalously, she openly entertained a string of lovers among Europe's elite, including the very married Prince of Wales.
