This British farce is a sexy exhibition of love in the round, where an assortment of would-be philanderers and scantily attired females cavort around. Set in a fur salon in London’s fashionable Saville Row, the two owners are having difficulties staying financially afloat. The one owner, Arnold Crouch, is concerned about the business but the other, Gilbert Bodley, is busy wooing a prospective mistress. Tensions rise when Bodley tries to win the favor of a particular woman by selling a fur coat to her husband at bargain price and the husband proceeds to gift the coat to his mistress.

By Ray Cooney and John Chapman.
