Synopsis: Sheridan Whiteside, having dined at the home of the Stanleys in Ohio, slips on their doorstep, breaking his hip. Ex-convicts are invited to meals; penguins, octopi, and cockroaches arrive as gifts; and Whiteside's fabulous, sophisticated, and very quirky friends (thinly-veiled portrayals of 1930s celebrities) disrupt the Stanleys' humdrum, though stylish, home. When Maggie, Whiteside's secretary, falls in love with the reporter, Bert Jefferson, and threatens to leave Whiteside's employ, Whiteside summons a glamorous actress, Lorraine, to win the affections of the young man. The battle of wills between Whiteside, Maggie, Lorraine, and a few others are engaged to determine whom the unsuspecting Bert Jefferson will end up with.
