A Character Study... of "Pretty Nell" Gwyn, the charming orange peddler who captured the heart of King Charles II and rose from rags to riches becoming a folk heroine. Dorthy Gish is delightful as Nell Gwyn whose charm and wit captivate the aged King Charles II (Randle Ayrton), propels her to a star in the King’s theatre and wins her influence that she uses to help the common people.

80 minutes with a music score by Christopher Congdon
