There’s a Girl in My Soup is a delightful surprise: a rather simple legit sex comedy (by Terence Frisby) transformed into breezy and extremely tasteful screen fun.

Peter Sellers is a TV personality whose roving eye misses few femme specimens. Accidental encounter with Goldie Hawn, who is having some free-love domestic problems with mate Nicky Henson, blossoms into unexpected love and compassion between the unlikely pair.

Henson is excellent in giving depth to the limited part, and adds immeasurably to the general moral tone. In superior support also are Tony Britton as Sellers’ publisher-confidante; John Comer as Sellers’ envious doorman; and Diana Dors in a good offbeat character casting as Comer’s shrewish wife.
