Mrs. Henderson Presents

'Mrs. Henderson Presents' is a movie about how a wealthy & newly widowed lady started London's Windmill Theatre in 1937, which soon became famous for its nude dance shows. I watched this movie only now & thought Judy Dench was superb as Mrs. Henderson; backed by some very witty lines. The most tongue-in-cheek scene in the movie is of course when she gets an approval to have nude girls on stage only if they are motionless, because the government considered nude paintings as art, but nude women who move & dance would be just plain vulgar :)
