A butler, Crichton (Kenneth More), wakes his master Lord Henry Loam (Cecil Parker), a fabulously wealthy English aristocrat with liberal views. The Lord decides that he will hold a tea for everyone in the household, including the many servants, with everyone mixing as equals. Crichton disapproves of the idea, but obeys and the tea is organised. Lord Henry's three beautiful and unmarried daughters are supposed to attend, but one avoids the event by going for a drive into London with her aristocratic boyfriend. The tea is not a success. The servants are embarrassed, and their masters find it all…

- The film was adapted into a musical entitled "Our Man Crichton" which premiered in London on December 21, 1964. 肯尼思·莫尔 repeated his film role of Crichton in the musical version.
- The Red Dwarf robot/android "Kryten" was named after the butler, Crichton (the SF robot has the same name, but this time phonetically).
- For much of his role as Bill Crichton, 肯尼思·莫尔 was filmed from the waist up to hide the fact that he was wearing shorts with his dinner-jacket because of the heat during filming.
