An older Lady is having a birthday again and has invited four guests: Sir Toby, Lord Pommeroy, Admiral von Schneider and Mr. Winterbotton. The only problem is that the four have passed away long ago, and so the butler has to step in and help drinking all the sherry, wine and champagne served with the birthday dinner. He does a very good job on this and it seems that he also did a very good job for all the four guests after the dinner (upstairs). Written by

Even here in Australia one is not spared the ritual of "Dinner for One".
For many years SBS (the multi language public broadcaster here) has shown "Dinner for One" on New Year's Eve.
The version that is shown is the 1963 German TV version with English subtitles for the German introduction. (Although for some reason they have edited out the Heinz Piper's German explanation of the English dialogue!)
It remains a simple pleasure to be savoured each year!
