A Friend Indeed


William Douglas Home

Directed by: Mollie K Locke

September 1973

A young pair who have met on the Isle of Capri a few days earlier and want to get married right away.
The girl is the daughter of the Permanent Head of the Foreign Office, and the boy the son of the rich American widow. But the boy is also the son of the Permanent Head of the Foreign Office, the result of a spot of diplomatic dalliance in Washington during the war.
