I was working in a first-run movie theater when we showed this. I thought the plot line was extremely weak then, and I still do. Julie Newmar plays a Swedish beauty in search of a father for her planned child. She wants to find someone with a lot of intelligence so her child will grow up to have both beauty and brains. She finds James Mason's character who is a professor, and not a bad looking one at that. Having settled on him as a potential father, she finds there is only one hitch: he is already married, and his wife, not being into the liberated Swedish lifestyle, will have nothing of her husband's being unfaithful. How they managed to squeeze 98 minutes out of this plot line still mystifies me. Another thing that is puzzling is why two top-rate actors, Mason and Hayward, would have touched this script with a 10-foot pole. Like good coffee grounds won't make good coffee out of bad water, good acting just can't salvage a bad plot. They must have had to pay some bills. If you are desperate for a movie to watch, I recommend "Rocky XXIII" instead.
