The Professionals is correct, lavenderblue.  Great film from director/writer Richard Brooks. A personal favorite of mine.  Good job...it's your turn.

No, sorry it's not that film. However, one of stars is the same in both films. Please read all the clues, other than the Broadway show and a man looking for backing those things did not happen in Tea For Two

lavender, 

The only other film I can think of is "Lucky Me" which also stars Doris Day....could that be the film?

lavender, 

You've got it! For awhile I was beginning to think no one had seen this film. It's a personal favorite of mine. The thread is yours.

The Lion In Winter?

Det Jim,

You're absolutely correct! "The Lion In Winter" is the film.  I love this movie from the beginning to the end. The performances are all superb and the pairing of Peter O'Toole and Katharine Hepburn is sheer bliss. 

It's your turn, now.
