society high-jinx by Noel Coward
30 October 2008 | by (southwest US) – See all my reviews

Part of the seven-disk Noel Coward Collection from BBC. The only cast member I recognized was Clive Swift (was the henpecked husband Richard on Keeping up Appearances). In our story, British author Evan (Paul Daneman) stays at the home of Louise Steinhauser (played by Carol Baker) in the US. He shares a bathroom with a flashy guest "Lester", (Neil Cunningham) who calls him "Sweet-heart" and "Honey". Clive Swift is the husband of the hostess, and we see him gathering up his golfbag, playing cards, or skulking around with female guests. Evan meets the house-guests, travels to other nearby house parties, and the high-society drama begins. One of the better acting jobs is by Phillip Joseph playing "Don Wilson", who, as of today, is listed in DVD credits, but not yet on IMDb. Some of the party guests are extra friendly towards each other, and towards Evan as well. Will he manage to escape the clutches of the quirky men and women chasing after him? Good story by Noel Coward, directed by Tony Smith. In color.
