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
It's a pleasant and pure romantic comedy. The script is stylishly witty. There are many funny scenes in this movie (I let you discover them). As I am French, I was really interested in discovering Edwige Feuillère in an international movie and speaking English!(one of the most famous and talented French actresses). What a good surprise as she speaks in English so well. I suppose this movie was unique in her career. She really looks like a Hollywood star, playing charmingly, elegantly, wearing superb dresses. She gives a fine performance. The director, Terence Young, wanted her in his movie after watching her in Jean Cocteau's film "The Eagle has two heads" (in which she played the Queen Natasha). So, she had to learn English very quickly. Steward Granger is irresistible, alluring, at ease in comedy. The leading support is very good too. Highly recommended for any fan of romantic comedy. I don't know whether this classic movie will be released on DVD one day. So, in the meantime, I keep it carefully on video. As to me, I once saw Madam Edwige Feuillère, on stage, in Paris. What a perfect voice!
