Jean Gillie has got to be one of the funniest actresses I have seen. Her role in this movie started off as somewhat annoying and pretentious, but when she suddenly gets drunk on "champy" - my, oh my! There's certainly never been a better drunk scene, with funnier consequences, than this.

Jill's in love with her boss, he's in love with her, but neither can get started. He wants to marry her, but he can't marry and employee, so he fires her and says he'll explain later. She thinks he doesn't love her so she concocts a little plan to jump off a bridge as his car passes, so he'll save her and realise how much he loves her. Only when she sees his car and jumps, she's saved by his friend, who was just borrowing his car! She ends up in the friend's bed, wearing his pyjamas, and getting drunker on champagne, brandy, and caviar by the minute, which could lead for some very interesting consequences if the man's fiancee was to find out...
