Romance with A Double Bass is a truly delightful film and an important piece of film history. Based on a short story by Anton Chekhov this project was one of John Cleese's first post-Python projects. Romance With A Double Bass was the second writing collaboration for Cleese and Connie Booth, and their first on screen appearance together, before they created the classic, Fawlty Towers.

A bassist (Cleese) shows up early for the betrothal ball of a beautiful princess (Booth) and whiles away the time having a dip in the river. The princess is doing the same unbeknownst to the bass player, but when someone steals their clothes the bass player helps the princess to preserve her dignity by transporting her back to the castle in his bass case; along the way they overcome many mishaps and discover they have feelings for each other.

The film also starts a host of British talent including June Whitfield, Graham Crowden, Freddie Jones, Jonathan Lynn and Andrew Sachs.
