Looking for a classic film -- probably in the romantic comedy genre.
I do not know the title or actors ... but it may even be a B&W.  I
believe a pretty blond actress was in the lead role.
As far as I can remember ... the basic storyline is as follows:
A rich older man (who drinks mothers milk) wants to cryogenically
freeze a young lady so that she will still be young when his baby
grandson grows up and they can marry.
The girl's boyfriend then freezes himself so he can win her back when
she's thawed out.  By chance, she's thawed out almost immediately ...
she takes his frozen body (in a block of ice??) on a mediterranean
sail so that he can thaw out.  The ice block slides off the deck and
he floats away and thaws on shore in France or somewhere.  The rest of
the film is them chasing each other all over the world nearly missing
finding each other again and again.

I would like to know the name of the film and where to buy a copy if possible.

Hello.

I believe that you're thinking of "The Perils of Pauline" (1967).

"Pauline... is rescued by a 99 year-old millionaire who wants to
freeze her so that his one year-old grandson can marry her in 25 years
time"

DVD and VHS copies are also available on eBay:

I can't believe you found this so quickly. :) 

I had always thought that Perils of Pauline was the title of the film
... but in all my searches ... only the old Betty Hutton series of
films ever appeared.

Well done!
