Elisabeth (Dayle Haddon) is the editor of a womens' magazine and has decided to run a contest to find the most attractive man living within the magazine's reading area. He (Gerard Tybalt) is a circus lion-tamer, temporarily at leisure because of the death of his lion. He has been urged to enter the contest by the circus' manager (Fernando Rey). After a number of trials, somewhat after the manner of the Trials of Hercules, the winners are chosen. The lion tamer has placed second: his prize is 10 days with a girl supplied by the magazine. He insists that the editor should be that girl. After some hesitation, she accepts -- which is not the end of the story, by any means.
