Fundamentally, this is a sex comedy done in lively enough fashion. Then it strays into a more serious territory trying to show up the hollowness behind the tinselly pop world.

Rod Taylor plays a successful, talent exec in an agency, disenchanted, because he figures that the job makes him a parasite. He’s also an inveterate lecher and a heavy drinker.

After a particularly hefty binge his chilly wife (Penelope Horner) walks out and Taylor moves in temporarily with his best friend and colleague, perkily played by James Booth, and latter’s wife (Carol White), in whose arms Taylor finds solace.

Meanwhile he’s getting tired of nursemaiding a preening pop-singing idol (played with horrible veracity by Clive Francis).
