||Synopsis: Inspired by a performance of his favorite play, "Volpone," 20th-century millionaire Cecil Fox devises an intricate plan to trick three of his former mistresses into believing he is dying. Although the women are wealthy in their own right, all have good reason to covet his fortune. To assist him in his scheme, Fox hires William McFly, a gigolo and sometime actor, to act as his secretary/servant. Fox is soon visited at his "deathbed" by the three former mistresses: Merle McGill, a fading Hollywood sex symbol; Princess Dominique, who once took a cruise on Fox's yacht; and Lone Star Crockett, a Texas hypochondriac who travels with an enigmatic nurse/companion. As Fox and McFly act out the charade, things take an unexpected turn from comical farce to full-blown murder mystery. Written by alfiehitchie

Watch The Honey Pot - Alternative Versions.
Coming at the end of a prosperous string of all-star mystery films, THE
HONEY POT suffered more from a lame title and timing than anything on
screen when first released (an even worse title, "Up Pops Murder"
didn't help when the film was first released to television).
The typically superb script and direction from Joseph L. Mankiewicz,
from a play by mystery writer Frederick Knott, inspired in turn by Ben
Johnson's classic play, VOLPONE, THE HONEY POT could not have had a
better cast with Rex Harrison (at the top of his game) as the
supposedly super-wealthy Cecil Fox mentally tilting with his secretary,
Cliff Robertson, and a nosy nurse/love interest for Robertson, a very
young Maggie Smith (younger viewers may be interested to see this very
different performance from HARRY POTTER's Professor McGonagall - as
well as her amazing Desdemona opposite Olivier's OTHELLO) and a trio of
ex-loves, Edie Adams, Cappucine and Susan Hayward all in Fox's
beautiful Venetian palatzo (the exterior shots are as gorgeous and the
A death happens (accident? perhaps murder?) and a Venetian police
inspector, Adolfo Celi, enters the picture (lovely side note as his
family at home is enraptured with PERRY MASON on American TV more than
his real-life work) and the film starts to leave Ben Johnson's Volpone
behind and delve into more complex games.
To be frank, this film has long been among my favorites - I have been
accused of teaching an entire university course on Mystery Writers just
to develop an audience for it. Showing the film at the conclusion of
the course, after considering the progression of great mystery writing
from Poe to Conan Doyle to Christie, Hammett and beyond, this marvelous
under-appreciated work from Knott & Mankiewicz never fails to grab
them. It's well worth a look for anyone interested in good literate
fun, great performances and writing that don't depend on splatter gore,
special effects or CGI.
While the ongoing box-office clout of stars Harrison and Hayward got
the film a limited VHS release, it's hard to a copy today - but well
worth the search.
Wonderful film...if only it had a better title.
