Caroline DuLac, a baroness and concert pianist, steals three jewel-encrusted Faberge eggs from a San Francisco museum. The eggs were demanded as ransom for her kidnapped fiancé.

Caroline first believes that Mike is one of the kidnappers, until a mysterious man in a trench-coat tries to kill her, and Mike comes to the rescue.

Did You Know?


This was Audrey Hepburn's first TV movie since a 1957 production of Mayerling, and the last feature-length production in which she would take a starring role. According to biographies of the actress, she reportedly agreed to do this obscure telefilm just for the fun of it. See more »

Great , For A TV Movie
19 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film was made for television and the night it first aired it had great ratings for viewers, because Audrey Hepburn was in it (one of her, by then, very rare appearances). The critics disliked the whole thing, but apparently because of their fondness for Miss Hepburn they ne'er said a critical thing about her in their reviews.

Well, I saw the film recently and I thought it was pretty good, as far as television movies go. Sure, she looked older than she had in 'Robin And Marion'. She was older. But she still retained some degree of her on-screen charm unmatched by any other actor. I truly enjoyed the film for all the minutes that she graced the screen, and they kept the camera trained on her quite a bit.

This film was touted as a 'Charade' type sort of comedy/caper involving some stolen Fabergé Eggs. What ensues is a tale typical of a Hepburn caper vehicle, with Robert Wagner thrown in to boot. I never liked Wagner until I saw this. He actually was quite a leading man, and although aging, he held his own as far as charm and sophistication went. He and Hepburn should have teamed up much earlier than this flick.

What a wonderful ,caring person, Audrey to appear in this film (according to some biographers she may have agreed to do it so that her long-time agent Kurt Frings, who was now ailing, could collect his $75,000 fee from her). This was her last 'feature starring role' and one of only a trio of television drama appearances. I was lucky enough to see this one, now I'm praying that they release 'Mayerling' on DVD soon.

If you get a chance you must check this one out. It's a fun film, not meant to be an Emmy chaser. Just good Ole' clean fun.
