Worried that his 20-year-old son John (Vernon Gray) needs a change of scenery and perhaps to find a wife, widowed Scottish baronet Sir Edgar Fraser (the always dependable Alec Guinness) takes him to Paris to experience the most romantic city in the world—but soon both of them are in the matchmaking business. After introducing Lizette Marconne (Odile Versois) to his son, Sir Edgar unexpectedly finds himself falling for her; proving that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, John attempts to pair off Sylvia Gilbert (Elina Labourdette) with his dad, but soon wonders if he belongs with her instead. This brisk 1955 romantic farce benefits from its Parisian scenery, filmed in lush Technicolor.
