Flawed but charming, this comedy features Guinness as a retired British officer who takes off for Paris in a Rolls Royce with his son, Gray. The baronet is convinced Gray has led too sheltered a life and it's high time for him to experience some of the charms of Parisiennes. Gray, on the

other hand, feels that his father has been living by himself for much too long on his Scottish estate. Convinced that female companionship would perk up Guinness, Gray decides to spend this holiday finding the right woman for his father. Guinness meets Versois, the enticing redheaded daughter of

cab driver Brunius, and is convinced she's perfect for his son. In the meantime Gray finds Labourdette, an older woman more suited for Guinness, and tries to fix her up with his widowed father. This leads to complications as partners switch among the quartet. Eventually the entanglements work out,

though not as Guinness had originally intended. Versois decides she'd rather be with her childhood sweetheart than with Gray, but the lad is hardly crushed by this. He's found a woman his own age, which, of course, leads to a happy denouement. This light romantic comedy has its moments but never

quite reaches the appropriate level of sophistication. The screenplay develops in a predictable manner. What makes this work is Guinness' delightful performance. He takes the twists within the story in good comic stride, handling every moment with care even when his talents are clearly much better

than the material. This film may be only a trifle, but it's certainly an entertaining one.
