This is a story of a woman's struggle for emancipation during the Victorian period. Pamela Thislewaite fights against the strict conventions of the 1870s, a defiance which doesn't prove to be an easy or popular task. However, as a true rebel, she defies her autocratic father, Judge Thistlewaite; has an affair with Gerald, an amorous young man who leaves her with a child born out of wedlock; and refuses to marry Thomas Lane, a faithful suitor.
Time - 1936
"Marked by none of the vitality of its predecessors in Katharine Hepburn's Victorian series, A Woman Rebels is saved from complete mediocrity by her well-modulated performance and by the admirable feeling for background and atmosphere implicit in Mark Sandrich's direction."
