Three stories by W. Somerset Maugham make up an engaging dramatic suite, beginning with "The Ant and the Grasshopper," which features Nigel Patrick and Roland Culver as two brothers struggling with each other's opposite personalities. "Winter Cruise" is a tongue-in-cheek tale of shipboard romance, with Kay Walsh playing an overly talkative spinster. "Gigolo and the Gigolette" relates the trials of a husband-and-wife vaudeville act in Monte Carlo.

A cheeky sequel to the 1948 mermaid tale Miranda, this romantic fantasy relates the further land adventures of the lovely and man-crazy mermaid from the first movie, again played by British film veteran Glynis Johns. When Miranda's look-alike human friend Caroline goes on holiday, Miranda decides to move into Caroline's home and live her life. The lark goes swimmingly until Miranda breaks off Caroline's engagement and falls for another man.

Based on real events, this historical drama is set in 19th-century Ireland, when poverty-stricken tenants dispossessed by greedy landowner Capt. Boycott (Cecil Parker) band together to assert their rights. Patriotic farmer Hugh Davin (Stewart Granger) leads the rebels. Choosing nonviolent resistance, the villagers ostracize their nemesis, who squanders his fortune to repair his ruined reputation and wagers what's left on a horse race.
