What! David Fenner? Let me speak to him again. David, this is Sheila. About your mother, darling...
Well, I'm afraid she's dead, actually.
Yes, I know, darling, that's why I'm so sorry about asking you to give her my love.
I'm afraid I can't, because she's dead.
I know, darling, that's why I'm so sorry. It was such a silly mistake to make.
Well, she couldn't help it, actually.

This is a cute movie, made funny by Rex Harrison and Kay Kendall. Both actors are superb in comedy, especially in this comedy. It's hard to believe Ms. Kendall would be gone a year later. According to Mr. Harrison's autobiography, he knew his wife was dying, but she did not know. This movie is a wonderful valentine Rex Harrison gave to his wife, Kay Kendall.
A few years earlier, Kay Kendall made a very funny movie, "Simon and Laura" with Peter Finch. Movie is not available on video, so watch for it on television.
