Brief Synopsis

In 1909, British belle Ivy Lexton meets older, rich Miles Rushworth; undeterred by the prior claims of her husband Jervis and lover Roger, she goes after Miles and has no trouble fascinating him, but oddly enough he has compunctions about making love to other men's wives. The means Ivy reluctantly adopts to resolve the problem of too many men promise disaster for all concerned.
