Synopsis: Lemmon is an American diplomat in London, seen regularly around town with Novak, who, it's rumoured, killed her husband. Astaire is Lemmon's disapproving superior who orders Lemmon to spy on her but is later also won over by her charms. Hilarity ensues when the supposedly-dead husband returns.

P.J. says:

Not seen this one. Kim Novak's good to look at but her acting skills don't exactly excite me. George Lemmon is usually funny. Fred, of course, is always worth watching.
