Picture of Innocence
Post-war Britain, a place where the ravages of the last few years were still evident on every street. People could breathe easier now the bombing had stopped, and their lives could slowly get back to normal. It was still a time of austerity; even basic foodstuffs were rationed, and luxury goods were a dream to many unless you knew where to look!
Innocent Mary Murphy is a young woman with her head in the clouds. Her life revolves around her work and the stars on the silver screen, movies being her escape from the grey world around her. Her fascination and desire to BE like those Actresses on the screen takes her into the world of the Black Market; and more specifically the world of Bargain Bernie! He has come out of the war a wealthy man, known all over London as THE man to go to for anything you could possibly desire; and he has just what Innocent wants!
When she see’s the beautiful lingerie and clothes that fill his warehouse Innocent MUST have them, and he has a way for her to earn them!
Her naivety leads her to believe she is “modelling” his clothes for his customers, little knowing she is feeding the desire for erotic pictures! When the chance comes to actually be in movies as part of her new profession she jumps at the chance…and that is where things take an unexpected twist!
