Victor Hemsley and his daughter, Clare ply their trade at swanky Riviera resorts, where they pose as a married couple---hence the title---and he "disappears with all of her savings" and sympathetic money contributions pour in on her from the wealthy guests. She would prefer a more settled life and meets and falls in love with Terence Winch, an investigator for the British Treasury. He is ostracized by both the guests and the management as his job is to see that none of the British citizens spends more money than permitted by the government. Clare agrees to work with her father on one last scheme in which they "sell" the hotel they're staying in in Nice. They pull it off, but are paid in counterfeit money and flee to Italy, followed closely by the police and Terence. James Hayter appears as the wealthiest man on the Riviera who is also England's best known tax dodger, while David Hurst is a petty thief who always fails and Charles Goldner is an amorous hotel manager.

The delightful tale of a polygamous Miss
Did You Know?
Originally the film was to be about a Scots bridegroom who arrives for his wedding in Scotland to find that his bride has vanished so goes off on the honeymoon in the South of France alone and gets mixed up with crooks. When filming was about to start the word was that an American star was in the lead so the story line was changed to an American goes to France to build a Coca Cola factory to the annoyance of local wine growers. The producers were pleased with the script but David Tomlinson was now the star so the script was changed to an Englishman working in France for the British Treasury watching that tourists don't spend more than their allowance. When word of this got out it proved unpopular with both the English and the French so there was yet another change with Terence Morgan in the lead and it would now be a romantic film instead of a comedy which is how it was finally made.
