Never trust a man whoever he is. This is the bitter lesson learned by Mary MacNeil in her relationships with three different men: her father, a mendacious womanizer; a smooth-talking office flirt, Cornelius; and an aging barrister, Emlyn, who is enchanted by Mary's youthful vitality and charm. Only one of these men will win her heart in the end.

This movie was originally conceived as three television plays for the British ITV Saturday Night Theatre (1969) series, to raise awareness to charities who catered for less unfortunate actors and actresses who needed long term help or health care. The common link is that they are all about the male of the species. In their U.K. form, and respective order, they were known as "MacNeil" featuring Sir Sean Connery, "Cornelius" featuring Sir Michael Caine, and "Emlyn" featuring Paul Scofield. See more
