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

Trivia

In her autobiography, Doris Day wrote that when she read this script, she remarked to her manager/husband Martin Melcher: "Thank God we don't have to do movies like that anymore!" His response: "We've already made the deal - there's no sense getting all steamed up about it!" Melcher had power of attorney for Day and signed her up for this film without her knowledge or consent.

Crazy Credits

Each screen of the opening credits is presented uniquely. The names of the leads appear in speech/thought bubbles of an extra. One page appears gradually as a walkie-talkie's antenna extends. Others fade in, slide in, are pulled from behind walls, appear with different clipart, etc. See more »

Engaging spy romp.
9 March 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

So many people hate Caprice, including Doris Day herself, that I was quite surprised, when I finally saw it, to find how enjoyable it was. Admittedly, it is not high art or even subtle, but it is an engaging spy romp, in true '60's fashion, with Doris and Richard Harris exhibiting nicely judged performances. They make an excellent team and look well together. Richard Harris is, admittedly, not renowned for comedy roles, but the character of Christopher is surely meant to be rather sinister. The script makes certain that we don't know whether to trust him or not. I think his is a very underrated performance. The fashions and make-up are truly of the period, and there are some very exciting and funny set-pieces. I'm all in favour of films like Caprice, which set out to entertain, and I will certainly watch this film again and again.
