The Honey Pot (1967)
As an elaborate joke, the wealthy Cecil Fox (Rex Harrison) hires actor William McFly (Cliff Robertson) to play his personal assistant and invites three of his old flames, including Texan socialite Mrs. Lone-Star Crockett Sheridan (Susan Hayward), to visit him. Claiming to be on his deathbed, Fox has motives that remain unclear, and things take a surprising turn when one of the guests is found dead. As Inspector Rizzi (Adolfo Celi) investigates the crime, the plot of the mystery thickens.

Excellent Movie! Terrific Suspense! It kept me guessing and thrilled up to the last minute, something that is rare in movies made today (2006). Rex Harrison in his finest. His dancing was superb! Maggie Smith as Nurse (Moth brain) almost stole the show and Cliff Robertson was especially convincing as an actor and a lawyer. I adored Adolpho Celi who played the Inspector. He was so smooth and gentle almost to lead us to believe he was not very bright but to the contrary. I’ve always enjoyed Susan Hayward, she gave them movie some spark and gave it life and as Cecil commented after she was gone that things would be dull from now on. Yet it wasn’t and the script kept the viewers moving right along. Was there a cameo by Jack Benny playing a street musician?
