Summary

Premier William Power: Labor politician, ambitious, driven, oblivious to women. Mrs. Helen Pretty: glamorous widow, wealthy landowner, fatally attractive. When Power's Compulsory Resumption of Estates Bill threatens the home and property of Mrs Pretty, she pays the Premier a visit. Throw in the Leader of the Opposition (who just happens to be Mrs Pretty's fiancée), an aggressively conservative journalist, and watch scandals unravel. Mrs Pretty and the Premier is an Australian comedy with style, flair, a light touch and a gorgeous pun or two.
