Before suffering as a middle-aged crazy in Blake Edwards' 10, Moore played a man depressed by the prospect of turning 30 in this comedy for which he also cowrote the script, wrote the score, and conducted his own trio playing the background music. He's a musician working in a London
nightclub owned by MacRae. He wants desperately to write a smash musical and also to get married to his ideal woman, whom he hasn't found. When Kendall moves into the boarding house where he lives, he falls for her and pursues her with a vengeance, though she already has a boyfriend (Nicky
Henson). When Moore comes on too strongly for Henson's taste, Henson breaks Moore's arm. Unable to play the piano, Moore heads for Dublin to work on his musical and there is inspired by a whimsical Irish storyteller (Michael MacLiammoir). He finishes his musical, but before returning to London to
give the work to Bayliss, his agent, he heads for Birmingham because he heard Kendall had gone there after having a fight with Henson. Of course, he wins Kendall's heart, and his play is a smash. Yes, it's all contrived and preposterous, but there's enough humor to keep it all humming pleasantly
along. Moore was married to Kendall at the time this film was made.
