Variety of changes throughout the movie that were unexpected
I just saw the movie and was captivated by that young french actress Mylene Demongeot. She played an attractive, yet confused girl.
With a number of the Carry on gang there I thought the movie would be an entire comedy. After the old couple who were hired as baby sitters, it turned into more of a drama, which was unexpected.
The wife's role was not really focused upon and it was really the husband trying to deal with his attraction to the new nanny, like all the rest of the male cast. You got the feeling if another time and another place, who she would have found in the end.
Mylene's character 'Ingrid' was the most interesting. THe way she drifted into the lives of the men around her and even the husbands. I think at the end she didn't know what she wanted and the solution was to end the adventure.
Very entertaining and interesting the way the plot developed to the surprise finish.
