Newly arrived in Hollywood from England, Dennis Barlow finds he has to arrange his uncle's interment at the highly-organised and very profitable Whispering Glades funeral parlour. His fancy is caught by one of their cosmeticians, Aimee Thanatogenos. But he has three problems - the strict rules of owner Blessed Reverand Glenworthy, the rivalry of embalmer Mr Joyboy, and the shame of now working himself at The Happy Hunting Ground pets' memorial home.

Although Tony Richardson preferred to make his films entirely on location, this one used MGM's Culver City studio extensively - but as a location. No sound-stage was employed as a sound-stage, but several parts of the studio, notably the entrance and the commissary, were used to replicate parts of the fictitious "Megalopolitan Studios". The film went steeply over schedule and a million dollars over budget. It was a major box-office failure. See more
