Storyline

Dr. Matt Younger and his daughter arrive for a month-long visit to London for dirt-bike racing and unexpectedly, a new romance for the widowed Dr. Younger. His new love interest is the beautiful and playful Catherine who seems to enjoy eluding Dr. Younger as much as she enjoys eluding the mysterious men who are following her. Their romance develops gradually as does the viewers' understanding of what is going on with this charming woman and the complications she brings with her. Written by Greg Bruno <burlynerd@usa.net>

An Outstanding Movie
2 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Had this been Doris Day and Rock Hudson...this movie would have won an Academy Award as best picture.

It was one of the first movies of this type to display minorities of color as people and not stereotypes.

The outstanding performances by all of the actors in this movie and should be emulated by all movies of this type.

If anyone has any information on Esther Anderson; please contact me.

If anyone has any information on Yvette Curtis; please contact me.

Good Writing,excellent performances, and insightful dialogs make this a movie that should be in all collections.

This is movie making at its best.
