On a stormy night, young woman asks another guest at party to rescue her from her lecherous boss and take her to the train station. When her rescuer suggests that she stop at his place to get out of her wet clothes, she dashes from his car. The door she knocks on for help is the home of a retired actor and there she spends the rest of the night. He makes no passes and next morning she discovers young man who drove her from party is next door neighbor. The two men compete for her affections. Older man's zany live-in house-keeper and a seagull she has rescued provide comic relief. Written by

The white brickwork fireplace surround in Preston's house has the mortar apparently sticking out between the bricks not recessed as usual. Either this is the work of the world's worst, most deranged bricklayer (deeply inappropriate for such an upscale house) or the set builders have simply taken a plaster cast of a brick wall and painted it white.

It is definitely a vehicle for Curt Jurgens to display his talents in light comedy. Debbie Reynolds is quite at home in her element here, which is also light and breezy with touches of seriousness now and then. On the whole I feel the film is lacking in spontaneity and robust humor, one senses it has been pre-planned too well and the actors may be going through the motions. It's enjoyable entertainment without delving into deeper matters.
