Hugh Mcdermett and Brenda Bruce play a married couple who each have a liaison with a member of the opposite sex whilst apart in Paris.Their butler,Herbert Lon hears about their antics which are unknown to the other party.He decides that it offers the opportunity for some blackmail.For some reason Mcdermett plays his part as if he is on some sort of stimulant as he is simply antic.He soon becomes very irritating and you just wish he would just shut up.Herbert Lon is an oasis of calm in this storm.Little surprise he became such a fine comedy actor.Humphrey Lestoq who rose to fame in the children's TV programme Whirlygig plays a naval officer.Clearly the director had little understanding of the making of a comedy film.
