Plot: This updated version of VOLPONE stars comic charmer Rex Harrison as Cecil Fox, a sly, wealthy man who pretends to be dying in order to test the love of his former mistresses. But a household full of greed and jealousy leads to trouble, as Cecil Fox soon finds out when he gets in over his head and one of his heiresses decides to speed his death along a bit. During Harrison's hot decade of the 1960s, in which he played some of his most famous roles, including the Oscar-winning Henry Higgins in MY FAIR LADY and the title character of DOCTOR DOLITTLE, Harrison teamed up twice with director Joseph L. Mankiewicz, known for directing--and often writing-- touchingly deep films about the complexities of human relationships, such as ALL ABOUT EVE and THE GHOST AND MRS. MUIR (another Harrison vehicle). During Mankiewicz and Harrison's collaborations in the 1960s, Harrison first starred as the doomed Julius Caesar in the glorious, romantic epic CLEOPATRA, playing opposite Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, then later in the decade took on the role of clever, scheming Cecil Fox in THE HONEY POT. A movie that allowed both men to demonstrate the wide range of their comic talents, THE HONEY POT was Mankiewicz's final screenplay and his last film with Harrison; Mankiewicz would go on to direct
