Brothers Francis and Douglas Oberon, find themselves cut off from the family fortune by their late grandmother's will. Their distant cousin (once removed), maidservant Antoinette "Toni" Oberon, is the benefactor of the entire estate fortune and is arriving to view her new property. Facing being homeless, broke, and actually working for a living, the boys devise a plot to either marry Toni (and share the fortune), or kill her off and claim the estate for themselves.

Good British film of its time.
15 July 2014 | by (Co. Kerry Ireland) – See all my reviews

I am adding reviews of all films I've seen that lack one at time of writing, here is the brief note I made at the time.... 'Good British comedy about a couple of poor brothers who's stately home has been left to a foreign cousin, what's the solution murder or marriage? Good.' It appears a fairly obscure title, mine is the 16th vote, though the director and many cast members will be familiar to anyone who knows British comedy of the 50's & 60's. I have no memory now of the film, but I did see it some 31 years ago in May 83, on BBC1, UK TV, check it out if you get a chance. I need to pad, the director Robert Asher is best remembered for his work on a number of Norman Wisdom films.
