Synopsis

In Fifties New York, Benjy Stone (Mark Linn-Baker) is a young writer for a live television comedy show hosted by King Kaiser (Joseph Bologna). When ageing former matinee swashbuckler Alan Swann (Peter O'Toole) is invited to appear in one of Kaiser's sketches, it is up to Benjy to play nursemaid to the alocoholic star in the days leading up to the broadcast. He soon discovers that Swann is a difficult man to handle, and is swept along by a series of manic escapades.
