Bernard and Doris 16 years old

Bernard and Doris

Sympathetic look loosely based on the relationship between tobacco heiress, Doris Duke and her shy butler, Bernard Lafferty. The icy and mercurial Duke fires her butler for serving a chilled cantaloupe; the agency sends Lafferty, formerly household staff to Liz Taylor and to Peggy Lee. He's an alcoholic, fresh out of rehab. With a wine cellar to die for, Bernard falls off the wagon. Can he pull himself together when Doris needs him?
