Infamous. Sad. Bizarre. Incomprehensible. All these words (and more) apply to a club woman of the first half of the twentieth century who firmly thought she was a great singer: Florence Foster Jenkins. Until now, very little was known about her, her life, her wealth, her loves and her tragic end. This documentary, written, produced and narrated by Donald Collup, most purposefully does not make fun of this eccentric socialite but tells the complete and uncensored story of this cult figure who entertained Manhattan audiences for over three decades. With copious archival images and audio interviews with people who knew her and attended her infamous 1944 Carnegie Hall concert.

A cleverly produced documentary using still images and interviews in the absence of any extant video footage of the diva.
