It must have been shocking to hear the b word in the more respectable era of the 1930s. Leslie Howard is quite sinister and misanthropic in this movie and Wendy Hiller is hilarious as the cockney girl trying to become a lady. This is the classic speech where she tries to sound posh but just ends up using a posh voice and common vocabulary to regale the vicar's tea party with tales of her dissolute family life: "It was them who pinched it what done her in"...
