    The romantic comedy

    Release Date:

    Sidney Poitier was at the peak of his illustrious career when this irresistable romantic comedy was released. Based on his own original story and filmed immediately after the landmark roles in `Guess Who`s Coming To Dinner?` and `To Sir, With Love`, Poitier simply shines in the lead role.

    Ivy (Abbey Lincoln), has been housekeeper and loyal confidante to the Austin family for nine years. When she surprises everyone by announcing that she is leaving, the whole family is devastated and will do anything to make her stay. They feel Ivy`s reasons for leaving stem from the lack of a man in her life and so leading son Tim (Beau Bridges) hatches a plan to matchmaker her with debonair man-about-town Jack Parks (Poitier). But Jack has a secret side to his life that could jeopardise the chance of true love.
