Summary
This title presents the extraordinary true story behind the film 'Belle'. Dido Belle appears, in her famous portrait alongside her 'sister' and companion Lady Elizabeth Murray, a vision of aristocratic virtue. But she was no normal 18th-century lady, and this was no common painting. Adopted and raised by Lord Mansfield - one of the most powerful men of the day - her mixed race and illegitimacy became the controversy of English high society
