Outrageously sexist, The Perfect Woman is also very funny if you're in a politically incorrect mood. A dotty scientist (Stanley Holloway), fascinated with the concept of artificial life, creates a synthetic woman (the staggeringly beautiful Patricia Roc) in his lab. This ersatz female is considered the "perfect woman" because she will do anything she is told, and will keep her mouth shut in the bargain. The scientist's niece (also Patricia Roc) decides to have some fun by posing as the robot girl. Based on a play by Wallace Geoffrey and Basil Mitchell, The Perfect Woman takes a while getting started, but the payoff makes up for the slow build.
