Warning to Wantons is a 1949 British romantic comedy film directed by Donald Wilson and starring Harold Warrender, Anne Vernon and David Tomlinson.[2]

The screenplay, written by art historian James Laver and the director, was based upon Mary Mitchell's 1934 novel A Warning to Wantons, subtitled 'A fantastic romance - setting forth the not undeserved but awful fate which befell a minx.'[3]

The film was one of the four of David Rawnsley's films that used his "independent frame" technique, a form of back projection.


A young woman escapes her strict convent school and enters high society, where she has the time of her life.
