Marlo Manners (Mae West), a legendary movie star, arrives at a hotel on her honeymoon with her sixth husband Sir Michael Barrington (Timothy Dalton) - an aristocrat very much her junior. Marlo is desperate to consummate the marriage. But events make this very difficult for her: ex-husbands. TV and newspaper reporters, a gymnastics team, secret agents and a group of diplomats at an important international conference all pop up at the wrong time to thwart her amorous ambitions. All the while a scandalous and steamy audio tape Marlo made a few years ago giving the complete low-down of all of her affairs is being passed round the hotel and Marlo is desperate to destroy it before it falls into the wrong hands!
