Lord Terence Datchett is a "confirmed bachelor" who doesn't really have much use for women. He meets up with a French movie star, Colette Marly, and takes a dislike to her, especially when it seems that she is deliberately trying to ruin his evening. He reads that the fetching Miss Marly is "bored" with men and, suspecting that it is a publicity stunt on her part, pretends to be a real-estate agent trying to sell her his country estate, all the while planning to "expose" her. Complications ensue. Written by
A French film actress, Colette Marly (Edwige Feuillere), tells the press she is bored with men. Lord Datchett (Stewart Granger) hears this statement as a challenge and sets out to prove her a liar. He sends her a letter inviting her to stay at his country estate to rest "while he is away."
Stewart Granger is devilishly charming as the woman hater, and the supporting cast is magnificent. Jameson (Ronald Squire), Lord Datchett's butler, drips with dry humor. Clair (Jeanne De Casalis), the French maid, is hilariously witty!
I am lucky enough to have this movie on video, but I believe it is now out of print. Hopefully it will be released on DVD.
