Synopsis

Storyline:
Anna Kalman is a London based actress. She has been unable to find love in her life. The reason why she came home early from a vacation to Majorca fits into that theme, as the man she met there and was initially attracted to ended up not being who she thought he was as a man. Upon her arrival home, she meets the suave Philip Adams, a financier who is a work acquaintance of her brother-in-law, diplomat Alfred Munson. Philip initially states that there is no Mrs. Adams in his life. But when Anna later asks him out, he clarifies that statement in that there is no Mrs. Adams in London, as she is at home in San Francisco.

User Reviews: I have been reading some of the comments about this film. Everyone needs to lighten up – This movie is basically what movie making is supposed to be about: ENTERTAINMENT! This is a light comedy. It stars two of the screens finest: Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant. It has no hidden message, no hidden meanings. Just sit back and enjoy the performances. The entire cast is splendid – and directed very, very well. It was intended to be a "fun" film. It is fun to see the relationship blossom – it’s fun to see the chaos that ensues. I have always adored Ingrid Bergman – I have always loved Cary Grant. You’ll love them, too. Stanley Donen made very adult films, meaning subject, not content in this case. There is nothing in this film that children should not see – they just won’t understand it. But it was not made for kids anyway, so, pop some popcorn, grab a soda, put your feet up and have fun watching this film!
