The film was a quota quickie production shot at Twickenham Studios, with La Plante as wisecracking New York girl Eve Chandler who receives the good news that she has inherited a large country estate in England. She crosses the Atlantic with her pal Julie, only to find that things are not as straightforward as she had been led to believe. Complications ensue as she crosses paths with a silly-ass toff (Claude Hulbert), an unscrupulous continental lothario (Banks) and a snobbish butler (Charles Paton) before she manages to sort matters out with the help of the kindly Sir Mortimer (Kendall), with whom she falls in love.
When in February 1956, Jack Warner sold the rights to all of his pre-December 1949 films; indlusing (The Girl in Possession) to Associated Artists Productions (which merged with United Artists Television in 1958, and later was subsequently acquired by Turner Broadcasting System in early 1986 as part of a failed takeover of MGM/UA by Ted Turner).
