Product Description:

Set in the early '50s in New York City, the golden age of live television, a swashbuckling guest star of a hit variety show experiences a great deal of difficulty keeping sober, so one of the show's writers is assigned to babysit. Academy Award Nominations: Best Actor--Peter O'Toole.

Plot Synopsis:

The year is 1954, and dashing Alan Swann, an alcoholic, swashbuckling movie star, is about to make his first television appearance, on "The Comedy Cavalcade" (a brilliant take-off on Sid Caesar's "Your Show of Shows"). Fearing Swann will make a drunken fool of himself on live TV, the producers ask Benji Stone, one of the show's youthful writers, to watch and babysit Swann for the few days prior to his stint on the show. The unlikely duo experience numerous adventures together (such as a dinner with Benjy's star-struck relatives) and form a lasting bond in the process.
