Synopsis

Comedy starring Jason Robards, Norman Wisdom and Britt Ekland. Minsky's in New York is a popular 1920s burlesque theatre which is under threat of closure by the Society for the Suppression of Vice. Comedian Chick (Wisdom) and his straight man Raymond (Robards) sense an opportunity to save the theatre when they meet innocent Amish dancer Rachel (Ekland) who has run away from home. The two men attempt to humiliate the police by informing them that Minsky's will stage a show at midnight that will feature an indecent dance by 'Madamoiselle Fifi' (Ekland), but instead plan to stage an inoffensive Bible-inspired dance. However, chaos ensues when Rachel's father Jacob (Harry Andrews) turns up at the show.
