Storyline

A money-to-burn and girl-chasing Texas oilman, Jeff Longstreet and a sensitive, dignified entomologist, Laura Weeks, find themselves together in Winchester, England charged with taking care of a brood of wild kids whose parents, both famous explorers, are reported lost while on an African safari... but, based on their offspring, they may be hiding. The kids fire their nurse and cook, and then proceed to try to unite the mis-matched Jeff and Laura, while raining havoc on Jeff's gold-digging girl friend Lola Sinclair and Laura's pompous fiancée Professor Baker.

The Reluctant Audience
4 August 2013 | by (london) – See all my reviews

To have one ageing American actor for the lead in a 1950s British feature film is normal but to have 2 is excessive.Particularly when they are both over the top and in their mid to late 40s.Neither were ever stars and Bruce's main claim to fame is as the last wife of John Gilbert.Little wonder that the film was not distributed in the USA till 1957.This is a rom-com with little rom and no com.There are also 3 grotesquely precocious children to put up with.Basically the plot is that an exploring couple get lost in the jungle and decide that their unwed relatives from America should look after their 4 children,there is a young child as well.the only enjoyment is seeing Arthur Lowe as a hen pecked husband.
