Under hypnosis, it is revealed that she was a promiscuous lady at the English royal court in a previous life. The therapy becomes complicated when the psychiatrist falls in love with Daisy's historical alter ego. "Minnelli und Ms. Streisand burst into life in the regression sequences. Minnelli's love of décor transforms the movie into very real fantasy and the star into a stunning looking and funny character." (Vincent Canby) Followed by drinks and music! (30.6.)
