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 1949 the great Fench actress Edwige Feuillere made her English-speaking debut in this silly comedy. It was a commercial and critical flop, and she returned to France feeling, perhaps, a little bruised. Thereafter we could read of her brilliance in the Sunday paper reviews of drama critic Harold Hobson, who idolised her. Seeing the film again (58 years on!) I am struck by her style and good humour and her easy command of English. She's not particularly sexy, but golly, she has class. Trouper Stewart Granger toils gamely to sustain the humour, but Mlle Feuillere walks away with the film: what a pity it wasn't worth walking away with!
