Additional Information
A lady's secrets. A servant's lust. A lover's betrayal.

An epic love story in which everyone has a great role and a big part!

The story of a young English footman who served the Lady Booby but loved the little Fanny.

Tony Richardson attempts to re-create the glory days of Tom Jones in this adaptation of the 1742 Henry Fielding novel. Peter Firth stars in this picaresque tale as Joseph Andrews, a young servant switched at birth who undergoes a series of romantic escapades. Joseph even has the fortune of becoming the personal footman to Lady Booby (Ann-Margaret). Joseph's romantic peccadilloes cause consternation among a collection of stuffy noblemen and women in 18th-century England.

seph Andrews is a 1977 period comedy film directed by Tony Richardson. It is based on the novel Joseph Andrews by Henry Fielding
With its rollicking comic plot, period costume and setting, ribald adventures and a dashing young hero who exposes his buttocks, the film was an obvious attempt to follow in the line of such films as Tom Jones, which was also directed by Richardson.
Ann-Margret was nominated for a Golden Globe Award in 1978 for her performance in the film.
