Caprice

Caprice is one of those occasional pictures about which it can be said fairly that it could have been better than it is. A timely and inventive plot - industrial espionage - is never fully developed in either writing, acting or direction.

Caprice is one of those occasional pictures about which it can be said fairly that it could have been better than it is. A timely and inventive plot – industrial espionage – is never fully developed in either writing, acting or direction.

Doris Day and Richard Harris are double-crossing double agents working, variously, for US cosmetics king Jack Kruschen, British counterpart Edward Mulhare, or Interpol.

Ray Walston plays Kruschen’s inventive genius, although it turns out that Lilia Skala, Walston’s mother-in-law in Switzerland, is the creative brain.

Elements of comedy, murder, satire and psychology are blended uncertainly in the never-boiling pot.
