A collection of guests gather at an English seaside boarding house. The landlady, Pat Cooper (Wendy Hiller), is the lover of failed alcoholic writer John Malcolm (Burt Lancaster), whose life is thrown into turmoil by the arrival of his ex-wife, Ann (Rita Hayworth). Other guests include the matronly Mrs Railton-Bell (Gladys Cooper) and her withdrawn, spinsterly daughter (Deborah Kerr), who is fascinated by Major Pollack (David Niven) and his tall stories of North African military exploits. David Niven and Wendy Hiller both won Oscars for their performances.
