Viewers familiar with the 1973 film with a very similar name will recognize many of the characters in this light comedy, which is set over twenty-five years in the future. In the earlier film, a saucy and gorgeous country girl was hired to keep house for a widower and his three sons and ran into difficulties when the middle son selected her as the object for his romantic obsessions. In this movie, the housekeeper has married her old employer, and the sons have moved away. However, the villa they live in is built atop an archaeologically interesting site, and she and her husband invite an archaeologist and his son to visit them to investigate it. Before long, she is receiving mash notes and flowers from the antiquarian's son, which she efficiently brushes aside. When evidences of romantic intent keep coming, she begins to wonder just who is sending them to her. It could be the boy, his handsome father, or even her own husband.
