Come September (1961)
A playboy who spends every September at his villa in Portofino arrives early (and unexpectedly) in July. He discovers that during the eleven months he’s not in town, his major domo runs the villa as a bed and breakfast.
This funny, silly trifle was beautifully filmed on location, with wonderful performances by all, but especially Walter Slezak as the charming, resourceful major domo.
