On marrying the boss's daughter, Richard takes his father-in-law's advice to hire a live-in domestic. He soon finds good help is hard to come by. Run-ins follow with dipsomaniacs, bank robbers, a Welsh lass who takes one look at London and runs, and an Italian charmer who turns the place into a bawdy house. Then when Ingrid arrives from Sweden things actually start to get complicated. Written by

When a young couple marry, the father of the bride hires a maid to look after them. Proving completely unsuitable, the couple embark on a series of hilarious attempts to find a replacement.
A curious film this, rather subversive (for 1959), episodic in feel and strangely (but effectively) mixing farce with poignancy. The leads are attractive, but the show is repeatedly stolen by a brilliant supporting cast. From Hickson's hysterically funny turn as the inebriated, dog-owning housekeeper Rosemary (her drunken ascending of the stairs is a delight) to Demongeot's joyously natural performance as Ingrid, the entire production is hugely entertaining and barking mad!
