Beautiful Michele Mercier (as Lisette), from Belgium, can't take the baby because she works. Apartment manager John McGiver (as Mister Snifter) doesn't allow babies, but he loves dogs, so Mr. Hope decides to pretend the baby is a dog.

In order to secure custody for their respective countries, a series of sexy young women are eager to jump into bed with older man Hope. The interludes depicting Hope's presumably promiscuous character as an ambassador of good will are strange, but fatherhood grows on him. Assisting the famous comedian are a cute baby, beautiful young women, an excellent supporting cast and good cameos. Helping to make "A Global Affair" fun are newscaster Hugh Downs, nurse Reta Shaw, walker Adlai Stevenson, sexy Yvonne De Carlo, head-turned taxi driver Billy Halop and policeman Mickey Shaughnessy.
