Synopsis: 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. Regardless, Anna decides still to ask him on the date she had intended to the ballet. He accepts, letting her know that whatever happens between the two of them that he will never be able to leave his wife. As time goes on, the two fall in love, their happiness which can only be sustained as long as Philip has his Paris-based contract with NATO. So when Philip announces th

Would you put the bags

here, please?

Give me a hand

with this, will you?

Will there be

anything else?

No, thank you,


Right you are. And

welcome back, Miss Kalman.

Thank you.

I'm glad to be back.

Will you be all right?

You know it's Doris

and Carls day off.

Yes, certainly.

I'll be all right.

Very good, miss.

Hello, Doris. Hello,

Carl. Nice entrance.

I thought

it was your day off.

We thought

you were a burglar.

Lucky for you

that Im not.

We heard a noise.

We didn't get a cable

you were coming back today.

That's why

we didn't meet you.

I didn't decide to come

until this morning.

Something the matter?


Have a nice trip?

Mm-Hmm. All right.

Oh, that's

no meal for you.

I'll get you

something hot.

No, that's all I want.

Go on about your business.

We don't have

any business.

We were only going

to have tea

And then go

to the movies.

Well, then go.

I've got

some nice lamb chops

And some

little French peas.

Go to the movies.

No, no, Doris, tomorrow.

How would you like me to

give you a nice massage?


I'll get you

some hot milk.

No, no, no.

N- O, no. G-O, go.

I'm staying here.

Ring if you want


Oh! I didn't expect

to see anybody.

I'm not back from the grave, you know?

Good evening,

Mrs. Munson.

What are you doing here?

Good evening, Doris.

Why aren't you

in Majorca?

Because Im here.

How's Alfred?

Alfred is fine.

I can see you're here,

But you should be

in Majorca.

Mr. Munson and I

are changing here.

Just put out our evening

clothes, will you, Doris?

Yes, madam.

And then go.

Very well.

Aren't you and Doris

getting on?

We get on fine.

Now, what's wrong with you?

You planned to be away

for the whole winter,

And here you are,

back again after 10 days.

I didn't find it


Is it possible that the

trouble isn't with Majorca?


What happened

to the colonel

That you wrote to me

about in your letter?

The one who looked

like a Greek statue.

He talked like

a Greek statue.

I don't think he knew

more than a dozen words.

Scotch and soda

and one or two more.

You were impressed with

him when you first met him.

I hadn't heard

the dozen words.

I don't know what you expect from a man.

You know there's a limit to

how entertaining they can be.

Well, they should be able to

talk a little, simple sentences.

You told me that

he was good-Looking

And that he danced


That's all a woman's

entitled to.

You can always

read a good book.

Dear little sister,

Go wash your mind

with soap.

I'm not your little

sister. I'm the older.

This is a side of you

Ive never seen before.

Sort of maternal

white slaver.

I'm not sympathetic.

You've plenty of beaus.

You're beautiful,

talented, and famous.

You're an actress

Who's the envy of

everyone who knows you.

But then they don't know me.

What about

David Wilson?

Why don't you

marry him?

I don't love him.

Why not?

I don't know why not.

I tried to love him.

I just don't.

Someone will turn up.


Do a play.

You know you're much

happier when you're working.

I don't feel like it.

Come along with us.

Come on. You'll feel

much better in a girdle.

Where are you going?

To a banquet.


Sometimes the speaker

is very interesting.

I remember

the last one.

The Dutch ambassador spoke

for an hour and 15 minutes...

in Dutch.

Well, we'll go on

somewhere afterwards.

Oh, why, lord?



what a surprise.

Hello, Alfred.

Mmm. Delicious cold

cream. You get that brand.

You're looking


So are you. How is

the foreign office?
