The Birds and the Bees is an absolutely delightful romantic comedy directed by Norman Taurog and written by Sidney Sheldon. Jean Harris (Mitzi Gaynor) is on an ocean journey with Col. Patrick Henry Harris, (David Niven) her father, and her father's partner Gerald (Reginald Gardiner). These three are not so innocent sea farers as George Hamilton (George Gobel) finds out. They are out to take Hamilton's fortune, but Harris' love for him just might get in the way. When Hamilton finds out what Jean Harris' true agenda is, he has to decide if he can ever truly love her. She is not one to give up on her dreams though, so she creates a disguise as Countess Louise. Her father, all the while, is still out to get the fortune of Hamilton. It is an absolutely crazy and exciting story. In the end, it shows if true love really does reign victorious in the end.
