Debonair Michael Gore-Brown inherits a dress shop and becomes romantically involved with its manager, Eileen Grahame. But when a rival shop across the street always seems to get the new fashions first, some investigation is required.[4]


Critical reception

The New York Times called the film "nauseously Technicolored flimflam.";[5] while TV Guide noted "The plot is about as simple as they come, but it's told so nicely that you can't help but be charmed. Wilding and Neagle are a sort of British Astaire and Rogers, playing well off each other in this lighthearted romp. The beautiful fashion designs, as well as glorious set decor, are well captured in the Technicolor photography." [6]
