Dulcima is a 1971 British drama film directed by Frank Nesbitt. It was entered into the 21st Berlin International Film Festival.[1] The film stars Carol White as Dulcima, a carefree girl who begins working as housekeeper on a run-down Gloucestershire farm owned by the miserly Mr. Parker (John Mills). The farmer quickly becomes enamoured of the pretty and lively girl and invites her to live-in. They begin a sexual relationship, which becomes strained when he discovers her affections for a local gamekeeper.[2] The story was taken from a novella of the same name by H. E. Bates. Filming took place in and around Minchinhampton and Tetbury in Gloucestershire.[3]

The Canadian television film Dulcima (1969) was based on the same novella, with the setting transferred to a small town in Ontario.[4]
