Summary
Sir Alec Guinness is Henry St. James, captain of an international ferry boat who has discovered the secret to the perfect double life: in Gibraltar he has a British housewife, while in Tangier his second wife is a hotblooded Spanish vixen. When the Captain becomes careless with anniversary gifts, he must see if he can not only outwit two betrayed wives, but survive a very serious firing squad
