With his wife off in the country (so he thinks), ladies-man Richard Willey, a junior minister in the British government, takes advantage of an all-night parliamentary debate to spend a naughty evening with a secretary from the opposition leader’s staff. A dead body, a hapless assistant, the hotel’s supercilious manager, a venal waiter, a private detective and the secretary’s suspicious husband all seem to find their way into and out of the hotel suite in this elaborate and hilarious farce.
