Do Not Disturb is a light, entertaining comedy, set in England but filmed in Hollywood, with Doris Day teamed with a new screen hubby, Rod Taylor.

Milt Rosen and Richard Breen adapted a William Fairchild play, and Day and Taylor star as a Yank couple localed in London, where hubby runs a woolen mill.

Stars play extremely well together, Day as the loving, but slightly wacky wife who grapples with English currency problems, rescues a pursued fox, and never quite gets the home in order, while Taylor is busy getting his factory into the black.

Their lives diverge when Maura McGiveney becomes too much of an assistant to Taylor, and sales chief Reginald Gardiner spells out the key for biz success: getting on the good side of Leon Askin, big wool buyer who throws swinging parties, meaning no wives.

Action cross cuts from Taylor’s problem to Day, who becomes innocently entangled with Sergio Fantoni, antique dealer and a prototype Continental charmer.
