This delightful comedy opens with the butler Hawkins laying the table for tea. A highly delighted Sir Cecil Warburton emerges from the summer house where he has been reading the obituaries – no doubt happy to see his name is not mentioned – but the name that has caught his eye is Reggie Townsend, the man who stole the love of his life fifty years ago.
With the arrogance of privilege (and of course being a man) he arranges to meet the newly widowed Evelyn – on her way back from her husband Reggie’s funeral no less – by the same tree where he kissed her fifty years earlier with the intention of making her his bride, but hasn’t considered the possibility that the lady might have other ideas! She is confronted with a candid and charming proposal in this light-hearted comedy that starred Rex Harrison and Claudette Colbert on Broadway.
