Celebrated British musical comedy star Cicely Courtneige was given a chance at American movie stardom in Perfect Gentleman. Courtneige plays an actress whose career has faltered. Frank Morgan portrays a retired military officer and longtime fan of Courtneige, who engineers her comeback. Despite being given the red carpet treatment by MGM, Cicely Courtneige was unhappy with her film, as indicated by the numerous script changes and haphazard shooting schedule. While Perfect Gentleman did small business in the US, it was popular in Great Britain, where in deference to Ms. Courtneige the film was retitled The Imperfect Lady.
