FEATURES / CONTAINS

Interior Set

As he had deserted them many years before, the family of Archer Connaught, famous author (and philanderer), receives the news of his death in a plane crash with mixed emotions. His daughter is cool and bitter; his son jumps at the chance to write the official biography and his wife relishes the idea of basking in the reflected glory of the tributes certain to come. But then Archer turns up, alive after all, and squiring the lovely young girl, half his age, whom he hopes to marry. But first a divorce is needed, and while his wife, Kate, is seemingly compliant, the problem (or so she says) is that they were never legally married in the first place. After that the complications multiply uproariously as family skeletons are exhumed, romance blossoms in unexpected places, and our hero comes to sense both the generation gap between himself and his intended and that value of a good, loyal wife, tried and true.
