Storyline

There is an on-going battle of industrial espionage between rival cosmetics companies, Femina, owned by Sir Jason Fox, and May Fortune, owned by Matthew Cutter. Caught in the middle between the two are among others top industrial designer Patricia Foster, who officially is on May Fortune's payroll after being fired by Femina, and Christopher White, a suave Brit who also is officially on May Fortune's payroll as Cutter's right hand man. On the surface, Patricia is still working for Femina trying to steal the new top secret formula for a water repellent hairspray developed by Dr. Stuart Clancy for May Fortune, that hairspray which would make all other hairsprays obsolete, while Christopher secretly tries to stop her. Below the surface, it is not clear whether either Patricia or Christopher truly are working for May Fortune, Femina or someone else. But as they progress through these on the surface missions, their true missions are eventually revealed as are their true allegiances, which ... Written by Huggo

"The Spy Who Came in From the Cold.....Cream"
31 December 2004 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

It's puzzling this Doris Day comedic spy-thriller never developed more of a following among her fans--must be because 20th Century Fox never released it on video (the DVD belatedly arrived Jan. 2007). Doris plays an industrial designer for a cosmetics firm in Paris who gets caught spying; she's picked up by a competing agency based in Los Angeles, where she is teamed with Richard Harris, who's working as a double agent. "Caprice" has many twists which render the plot nearly superfluous (it's wispy-thin to start with), but director Frank Tashlin keeps it all moving fast, helped by Leon Shamroy's colorful cinematography and the incredible '60s outfits. Day and Harris reportedly weren't fond of this picture (nobody was at the time), however it looks good today, and has some very funny set-pieces such as a chase in an apartment complex, a satirical episode in a movie theater (with Doris watching this movie, trying to get a snip of a girl's hair), and in the elevator, where Doris does a priceless comic turn with a cup of water. A fun time, loose and swinging, and quite different from what Miss Day was turning out at this point in her career. ***1/2 from ****
