Peter "Venture Man" Graham, an actor who is the hero of a TV popular TV series,
is forever being hounded by women, who just want to be with him. There is one
fan in particular, Pixie Potter, who will just not give up. Eventually, Peter
seeks refuge at the country rectory with his Uncle, the meek and mild Reverend
Arthur Humphrey, the cleric of the Rectory.
Meanwhile, the Reverend's sister, Harriette, a formidable woman, has
dismissed the housekeeper, an act which horrifies the Reverend. To fill
the missing housekeeper role, he advertises for a wife, but absentmindedly
omits the important word "marriage." These two occurrences resoundingly
shatter the peace of the village. Answers to the ad pour in. The arrival
of the (dignified) Bishop of Lax adds to the confusion. Peter finds
the vicarage no refuge from Pixie Potter and even more hectic
than the outside world.
