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
In 1947 the labour Government slapped a 75% ad valorem duty on American movies.So Hollywood boycotted the UK and the government encouraged Rank to make films to fill the void.This would have been one of those films.Unfortunately just as the films were reaching the screen the government reached an agreement with Hollywood as a result of which their films flooded back into the UK,swamping films such as this and leaving Rank millions in debt.This film shows all the signs of being hurriedly put together as the script is truly appalling.It is the most boring and least funny film that i have seen in a long time.For example the woman wants to get Granger to save her from drowning despite the fact that she was a good swimmer,so she capsizes her boat in the lake,Granger swims to her rescue only to hit his head on the boat.So she rescues him and takes him back to shore.Very original i must say.Pity the poor people who bought "The Stewart Granger" collection only to find this turkey waiting for them.No wonder it is little known and i cannot remember it ever having been inflicted on the TV viewers.
