Prudence and the Pill, DVD



David Niven and Deborah Kerr star in this British comedy about five couples whose attempts to use a birth-control pill are thwarted by those around them.

Banker Gerald Hardcastle (Niven) and his wife Prudence (Kerr) are unhappily married.

While Gerald has a mistress, Elizabeth (Irina Demick), Prudence is also having an affair with her doctor Alan Hewitt (Keith Michell).

Though Prudence is using a contraceptive pill, Gerald switches her medication in the hopes that she will fall pregnant to Alan and therefore mean he will no longer have to keep his relationship with Elizabeth a secret.

Meanwhile, three other couples - the Hardcastle's maid and chauffeur, Gerald's brother and his wife and Gerald's neice and her boyfriend - all want to try the pill for themselves but their secretiveness and scheming leads to more pill switching and a number of possible pregnancies.
