Storyline

Maria, a wealthy widow, invites her long-time dinner companion Richard to spend a month at her house in Scotland. If she still likes him after a month together, they will marry. Their mutual friends, George, Duke of Bristol, and his companion, Helen decide to make it a foursome. The humor in this drawing room comedy contrasts the vain, self-centered Maria and George with their gentle and sophisticated partners. Written by <mismith@brody.med.ecu.edu>

amazingly funny for a period piece. the chemistry between players was the best!
8 December 2005 | by (california) – See all my reviews

where can i buy this at any price? there are so many less deserving things for sale that unless this one has gone to the Land of the Lost Films, please let me know if the company that owns it intends to make it available any time in the future. The chemistry between the 2 characters that the audience is supposed to like the least ends up creating the most delightful and ironic plot twist. Jeremy Brett is gone, but this work of his is one of his best. His starchiness was used to the fullest, and unlike the cryptic Holmes character he is so much known for, this is a romantic divergence from the typical role he played. In My Fair Lady, his singing voice was cut out of the film, and all that was left was fluff.... see this one ANYONE...if you can find it.
