About this show

In the sophisticated comedy The Pleasure of His Company, San Francisco debutante Jessica Poole is planning her marriage to Napa Valley cattle rancher Roger Henderson, and hopes her father, the international playboy "Pogo" Poole, whom she hasn't seen in 15 years, will come to give her away at the wedding. But his arrival disrupts the entire household as he tries to entice Jessica into traveling the world with him, show up her fiancé, and win back the affections of his ex-wife. While his debonair style at first dazzles his daughter, he soon comes to realize that charm alone is no substitute for parental responsibility.
