This sparkling Launder-Gilliat comedy has a well-bred Englishman (Rex Harrison) waking in a hotel bedroom in Wales suffering from amnesia.
He sets out to find his identity with the help of Professor Llewellyn (Cecil Parker). He tracks down his successful fashion photographer wife (Kay Kendall) but soon learns that the hush-hush job at the Ministry of Munitions she saw him leave for every morning does not exist.
When he discovers that he, in fact, the perfect husband – six times over – he is appalled by his past and brought to court for bigamy. Such is his charm that all his normally intelligent wives pay for his defence and declare they would gladly take him back.
Cecil Parker and George Cole are excellent in their wittily-written roles as psychiatrist and tempestuous Italian, respectively.
It’s bright, saucy and, at times, a riot.
