Pretty Polly (also known as A Matter of Innocence) is a 1967 British film, directed by Guy Green and based on the short story, Pretty Polly Barlow, by Noël Coward. It stars Hayley Mills, Shashi Kapoor, Trevor Howard, and Brenda De Banzie. The film is largely set in Singapore.


Miss Polly Barlow (Hayley Mills) decides to leave England and "spend a few months with her wealthy spinster aunt as a traveling companion." While in Singapore, the sudden demise of her aunt (Brenda De Banzie) "leaves her alone to pursue her freedom and explore an arms'-length romance with a local" Indian Singaporean tour guide, Amaz (Shashi Kapoor). "Tender, fun loving, and poetic representation of that transition from youth to young womanhood."[1]
