(IBList user synopsis):
Three British artists sharing a Parisian studio befriend Irish foot model Trilby and a hypnotist named Svengali. Trilby enchants the three painters but soon falls in love with the youngest, Little Billee. She is unable to stay with him, however, as she is of a lower class and does not wish to create conflict with his family, and she leaves Paris.
Though tone-deaf, Trilby re-appears years later as Europe’s most prominent new diva, under the guidance of the mysterious Svengali. Still in love with Trilby, Little Billee searches for the secret behind Trilby’s success and her relationship with Svengali.
