"Hormone" Harry Douglas from the Sensuous Senator is back to his old shenanigans again, but this time as the American Ambassador to Great Britain.  He tells his wife, Lois, that he has arranged a golf outing in Scotland for the weekend.  Lois in turn tells harry that she too will be gone for the weekend at a spa, and that their daughter Debbie will be gone visiting a girlfriend.  Each then tells Perkins, their newly hired butler in their country home, of their plans.  He stoically watches as each one of them leave for the weekend.
So... Where's the farce?  Harry , secretly returns to the empty house, having planned a romantic rendezvous with a sexy, next-door neighbor Marianne.  This is no ordinary rendezvous as they plan to act out their fantasies, she as a French maid and harry as Tarzan.  Debbie returns with her boyfriend, Joe, believing they have the house to themselves for the whole weekend.  Harry's secretary, Faye Baker, and Captain South of the U.S. Marine Corps arrive in the wake of a bomb threat at the embassy, and must set up communications in Harry's country home.  Captain South places a squad of marines around the perimeter, and everybody is sealed in.
It soon becomes apparent that Faye was not hired for her secretarial abilities.
