Storyline

While in a Latin American country to close a big financial deal, Charles Mortimer is so engrossed in business that he neglects his wife Teri -- and doesn't even realize her discontent. In order to shake Charles out of his business fog, Teri plots to make him jealous, or at the very least take notice of her when she buys an expensive diamond ring. But while the Mortimers are in the jewel shop, they are caught up in a robbery, during which the ring and other items are stolen -- and Teri seems to hit it off with the suave robber. Their paths cross again later that night when the Mortimers hold a state dinner for the country's president, and the robber turns up as one of their guests. Written by Ron Kerrigan <mvg@whidbey.com>

Fast-Paced Delight!
17 September 2007 | by (Apalachicola, FLA) – See all my reviews

TCM is currently showing a slew of "forgotten" Teddington Studios films (which repeat next Monday), and this one is a template for any intrigue comedy. Black and white never look better in such low-budget parameters.

Who will hook up with whom? Who will be arrested? What will become of the diamonds and other stones (they call them "rocks" for Americanism)?

One note: the absurdly large corsages worn by the women at the lapel is a trend I should like to see reappear.

Jewel thieves and a laconic damsel entwine. The film is never dull, and very fast paced. O, that films today would learn from such minor gems! I am enjoying this feature and look forward to other Teddington productions via Warner Bros.
