Synopsis: Owen Waterbury (Kirk Douglas), bestselling novelist, recruits aspiring writer Stephanie ‘Steve’ Gaylord (Laraine Day) as his latest of many secretaries. The stars in her eyes fade when she finds she is to work in his apartment, with a constant parade of eccentric visitors and slapstick provided by klutzy roommate Ronnie (Keenan Wynn). Moreover, Waterbury’s idea of work looks a lot like play, his interest less in books than in blondes. She leaves; to get her back, he swallows his playboy principles and marries her.
