Storyline

Harvey Middleman (Eugene Troobnick), a New York City fireman, lives happily in a New Jersey suburb with his wife (Arlene Golonka) and two small children. Harvey loves his life but after a fight with his wife over dinner one night he imagines himself rescuing a beautiful young girl from a fire. Just as he dreamed it he rescues a young model named Lois (Patricia Harty). Harvey steals a kiss from her as he resuscitates her and the two quickly fall in love. After secretly dating her several times, Harvey decides he must solve his moral dilemma by consulting his psychiatrist Mrs. Koogleman (Hermione Gingold). Mrs. Koogleman however is too preoccupied with her own relationship problems to help with Harvey with his conundrum. Another fire breaks out in Lois's apartment, and this time one of Harvey's associates Dinny (Will Mackenzie) rescues the Lois while Harvey saves a cat. Lois and Dinny quickly fall in love and Harvey is left to return to his wife. Written by Anonymous

Offbeat humor but very funny
18 May 2004 | by (Wauwatosa, Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

Small budget and inadequate film distribution held this movie back but it is a little gem.

Seen in Chicago circa 1965 and never been around since.Story of a henpecked fireman living a mundane existence in 1960's suburbia.

Each of the characters represents a personalty type that we have all come across in real life.

The humor comes from the exaggerated antics of each of these characters.

These antics are played out in Middleman's home life and also at work. Filmed in color at nondescript locations that could be anywhere in the United States
