Originally released in France in 1943, The Honorable Catherine (L'Honorable Catherine) wasn't distributed in the U.S. until 1948. The ironically nicknamed title character, played by Edwige Feuillere, is a blackmailer who has made a comfortable living through her married lovers. Now ready to retire and settle down, Catherine yearns for genuine romance. She thinks she finds it in the form of a handsome young rake named Jacques (Raymond Rouleau), but this time it is Catherine who is victimized by a clever con artist. A quaintly old-fashioned bedroom farce, The Honorable Catherine was more warmly received in France than in the States.
