Dexter King plays straight man to unpleasant comedian Ron Anderson. He falls in love with Kate, a pretty nurse he meets when he is receiving injections for hay fever. When Anderson fires him, he acquires the title role in a musical stage version of "The Elephant Man". Kate dumps him when she suspects he is having an affair with a fellow cast member, and he must win her back.

Do you want my advice on questions of love?
My advice is: go blind. Best thing that ever happened to me. Since 1944, every girl I've spent time with looks the spitting image of Mae West.

The American DVD release is different to the original British version. Several scenes are missing or shortened on the DVD. This includes the scene in which Goldblum is sitting in his agent's office watching other actors reading for great new plays and films, while he is offered a "shake and vac" commercial. Also inexplicably cut from the DVD release is the cameo appearance by Graham "Suggs" McPherson (from "Madness") during the "It Must Be Love" sequence. See more
