Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

When eight-year-old Tony Fleming draws a sexually explicit horse, his parents are divided over the right way to deal with the situation. The resulting fall out sees psychiatrist Clare Fleming (Anne Crawford), leaving her doctor husband Howard (Cecil Parker) and returning to the bosom of her family. Once there she takes off to France with her sister's fiancé, kick-starting a chain of farcical events. Prolific comedy director John Paddy Carstairs here turns in a workmanlike, but nevertheless likeable, adaptation of Lesley Storm's stage play.
