This Roger Bean version of the French farce of the 1960s features the so-called Parisian lothario Bernard, who has Italian, German and American brides, each a beautiful flight attendant. Everything is going well for Bernard as their flight schedules only bring them home every three days.
Bernard’s maid, Berthe, manages three sets of clothes, photographs, linens, and food preferences to thwart the trick. Things start to take a turn for the worse when there is a change in the women’s flight orders, which makes it harder and harder to separate them, and ultimately get all three of them home on the same day.
Add to that Bernard’s longtime friend Robert, who arrived in town unexpectedly. He is made aware of the scandalous arrangement and finds himself embroiled in trying to help Bernard and Berthe succeed in a single day.
