Alcoholic billionaire playboy Arthur Bach must marry a woman he does not love, or he will be cut off from his $750,000,000 fortune. But when Arthur falls in love with a poor waitress, he must decide if he wants to choose love or money.
Arthur is a happy drunk with no pretensions at any ambition. He is also the heir to a vast fortune which he is told will only be his if he marries Susan. He does not love Susan, but she will make something of him the family expects. Arthur proposes but then meets a girl with no money, with whom he could easily fall in love.Written by

Sir John Gielgud turned down the role of Hobson several times, finally accepting it only because the salary he was offered was too good to pass up. See more »
(at around 51 mins) Arthur is at Perry's door, while looking for Linda. Perry's wife opens the door and mouths some of Arthur's dialogue. She mouths the lines beginning with, "Very sorry to disturb you, Madam..." The last line she mouths is, "I hope this is the wrong house, no offense." See more »

Ok, even if you can't stand Liza- this movie is truly hilarious! The scenes with John Gielgud make up for Liza. One of the true romantic comedy classics from the 20th century. Dudley Moore makes being drunk and irresponsible look cute and amusing and it is damn fun to watch! The one-liners are the best.
