- Summaries (1)
An omnibus of three Noel Coward tales: the first, "The Red Peppers" (featuring Kay Walsh, Ted Ray, Martita Hunt, Frank Pettingell and Bill Fraser) about a bickering vaudeville couple who form an alliance when some of their company start to needle them, and ends up in some non-amusing slapstick. The second episode is "Fumed Oak" (with Stanley Holloway, Betty Ann Davies, Mary Merrall and Dorothy Gordon) is about a squabbling, middle-class family where Holloway has to contend with a ghastly mother-in-law, a selfish wife and a whining, complaining child and, after 17 years, tells each of them off and departs their company. The third segment is "Ways and Means" (with Valerie Hobson, Nigel Patrick, Jack Warner and Jessie Royce Landis) about a pair of parasites who go from city to city as non-paying guests of wealthy acquaintances. A wealthy American widow is trying to quietly kick them out of her French Riviera home, and the couple, needing funds to get to Venice, hatch a scheme to fleece her out of her gambling winnings.
