Storyline

Chaim and his wife can't decide whether to separate or divorce. So, instead, they decide to play boarder and landlady. This game goes well until the landlady begins to fall for the charming boarder. Soon the landlady starts talking about murdering her husband, much to Chaim's dismay... A highlight is Chaim's drunken dream in which he imagines himself singing, dancing, and clowning, like a combination of Fred Astaire and Marty Feldman. Written by David Steele
