In this movie, Patty Terwilliger Smith (Dame Maggie Smith) takes Willard C. Gnatpole (Bob Newhart) shopping, where she is seen trying on clothes and buying an outfit for twenty pounds sterling at the Apple Boutique on Baker Street, London, a boutique owned and operated by The Beatles. The boutique, which was the first venture of their Apple Corps Ltd. company, and featured a large psychedelic mural on the external wall, was only operated for several months in 1968 before being closed down, and the contents given away to the public for free. This movie provides one of the few rare filmed glimpses of the boutique's interior. See more »

...it's the president of the corporation in New York. He's at that age - a senior citizen. A little more "senior" than "citizen." In fact, he's been seen playing golf without a ball lately.
Oh, dear. How do you score that?
Carlton J. Klemper:
He's the president of the firm. You score it so he wins!

I rented this mainly to see Maggie Smith, and she proved to be enjoyable as always. Interesting to see Dame Maggie oogled as a pretty babe by Ustinov and Newhart. Overall, a charming, frothy little comedy-definitely a product of its time- with tacky 60s pop music & choppy 60s editing- it all seems to work somehow.
