This film was made with HH Ranee of Sarawak in Barbados last summer - just a few months before her death. She tells of her life as Queen of the Headhunters in North Borneo when she became the wife of Vyner Brooke, third and last White Rajah of Sarawak. Says her friend and neighbour Claudette Colbert, who narrates the film: If you wrote a film story about the Ranee's extraordinary life, nobody would ever believe it.'
'No one could have married a more wonderful man,' she says. He made my life... completely and absolutely made it.'
'I loved being a Ranee. I liked the traffic stopping wherever I went; I liked all the fuss. I loved every minute of it.'

A violent revolution is in progress: people are fighting and dying in the streets. In Madame Irma's bordello the girls, as usual, are helping to make men's dreams come true. But soon there is an opportunity to turn their fantasy worlds into reality...
Joseph Strick of "Ulysses" fame directed this imaginative film version of Jean Genet's controversial and brilliantly satirical commentary on the decadent world of today.
