Film details


Romantic comedy adventure. A vintner's daughter, Margaret, is sent to inspect the wine cellar of a Scottish castle. There she finds an extremely valuable bottle of wine, very large and bottled for Napoelon in the year of the comet. Her attempts to bring it back to London are helped by a smooth-talking Texan troubleshooter, Oliver, who is along for the ride, but hampered by some villainous scientists who believe a chemical formula to reverse the ageing process is written on the box that contains the bottle. Once they realize the wine is valauble, they want that too. After being chased through Scotland, Margaret and Oliver are chased through the south of France, where they declare their love for each other while trying to save the wine from the villains.
