Storyline

English dancehall actress Julia Packett hasn't seen her daughter since Susan was a few months old, having given her up to be raised by her respectable and wealthy father William (whom Julia never divorced.) When she gets an invitation to her daughter's wedding, she "borrows" some money from a male friend and heads off to the south of France for the nuptuals. While there she manages to establish a mother-daughter relationship, get another man to provide her with a lot of money, provoke her mother-in-law's ire, string along a potential husband and his mother, and rekindle the spark in William, all within a day or two.

Quotes

Susan Packett: [Walking through the forest] Look at that tree. How bent it is!
Ritchie Lorgan: Oh, there is a reason for that.
Susan Packett: Oh, really?
Ritchie Lorgan: Oh, yes. You see, that's a boy tree and he's eyeing the girl tree. And he's saying, 'You're so beautiful with your lovely green hair and your nice brown bark skin.' You know what she is saying to him?
Susan Packett: [Coyly laughs] No, tell me, Ritchie.
Ritchie Lorgan: She's saying, 'That won't do you any good at all. I have a heart of wood and, besides, I'm madly in love with the golden oak in the next forest.'

Kick Off Your Shoes with Greer!
17 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Greer Garson, soaking in her tub and locked in her room, pretends she's about to end it all. All this is a ruse in order to get her good friend Reginald Owen to pay her creditors, who are at her door. Ms. Garson's carefree, gay, and a delicious tease in this fun-filled romp that is sure to please even the crankiest of viewers. This shows Ms. Garson in a new light from her usual fare of melodrama, as she lets her hair down and has all the men around her on a string and using them to her advantage. It happens that she gets an invitation to her daughter's impending wedding. She had left her years ago, with her husband, of whom she never divorced (played by Walter Pidgeon,) because she is an stage actress and travels a lot. When she arrives, we see that most of them are not glad to see her, after all this time. But what happens next is a riot. Cesar Romero is great as part of an acrobatic act and as a suitor vying for Greer, giving the debonair Walter Pidgeon a run for his money. "What muscles am I using now?" If you've never seen this, you're in for a real treat, the cheery side of Miss Greer.
