Charlie, a young aristocrat in turn of the century England, meets a boy named Frank on the road to Portsmouth. What Charlie doesn’t realize is that Frank is actually Frances, who’s donned a disguise to escape working at a brothel. Charlie takes Frank/Frances into his home, and when he discovers her true identity, the two become lovers. He sends her to London to be trained by his mistress in the art of sex, but she learns much more about her identity as a woman. Before the opening credits, explicitly on-screen it reads: “Based on the famous Victorian erotic novel by an anonymous writer”.
Famed French TV game show hostess Sophie Favier – in one of her earliest and most revealing roles – stars in this boldly sexy epic about a cross-dressing teenage orphan named ‘Frank’ (Jennifer Inch of SCREWBALLS) who is adopted by a handsome nobleman (Christopher Pearson) with his own strange urges. But when the sultry virgin’s gender-bend is revealed, her deflowering unleashes a shocking torrent of voyeurism, violation, sadism and submission that will blur the line between pleasure and pain forever!
Also known as FRANK AND I, this 1984 Playboy production ignited an international controversy when Sophie Favier unsuccessfully sued to stop its long awaited re-release. Her court loss is a victory for Skinema fans everywhere as LADY LIBERTINE can now be presented totally uncut and uncensored for the first time on DVD in America!
