Victor and Hillary are down on their luck to the point that they allow tourists to take guided tours of their castle. But Charles Delacro, a millionaire oil tycoon, visits, and takes a liking to more than the house. Soon, Hattie Durant gets involved and they have a good old fashioned love triangle.Written by

When Victor and Charles play billiards, they use straight-rail billiard balls (two white, one red) on a table with pockets (on which 9, 10, or 15 balls, plus a cue ball, are used). See more »

Babies, some of them naked, on a lawn, are shown as if they were the cast and crew. For example, as the camera crew's names are shown, the babies are seen trying to work a camera; the "editor" is a baby tugging on a film strip, and so on. See more »
Some had mentioned Noel Coward and the drawing room comedy. I think it should be mentioned that the entire score was completely based on the songs of Noel Coward. I feel the film was an homage to Coward and his light plays of the 20's and 30's. Actually, if you know Coward's music, it forecasts things in the plot.For example at the beginning of the film when Grant and Kerr are having their first conversation, she reads a poem, and the music being played is "I'll Follow My Secret Heart." It is not too long after this she meets the third person in the triangle.
I think it's quite an enjoyable movie, and it is nice to see people enjoy performing light banter.
