Plot Summary

When William Gridley arrives from the US in London, he rents part of Carly Hardwicke's house from her and promptly begins to fall in love. Gridley doesn't know that many people think she killed her husband but his boss, on the American embassy staff, knows and doesn't take this "lapse of judgment" lightly. Since Carly is also American, Gridley saves his job by introducing her to his boss, who is promptly smitten and promises to help her. So when a Scotland Yard detective arrives, wanting to get to the truth one way or another, they say they'll help him. And then the comedic complications really begin. Written by Anonymous

Trivia When this movie was shown on CBS' Thursday Night At The Movies in 1965, the reels were shown out of sequence. Nobody at the network noticed at first but at approximately 10:30 p.m. the movie suddenly stopped and an announcer's voice was heard apologizing for the mix up. CBS then showed the entire movie from the beginning and it finally ended at about 1 a.m. See more »
Goofs In the murder trial, Police Sgt. Dillings testifies that he saw Gridley and Hardwicke standing together with their arms around each other, and that she had the gun in her left hand. In the first scene flashback, they are standing together and her right hand is down along her side with the gun in it. In her flashback scene later, she has the gun in her left hand after Miles is shot. See more »
