Description by OLDIES.com:
It's start-to-finish laughs when Polly Bergen ("Making Mr. Right," "The Winds of War") is America's first female president and Fred MacMurray ("My Three Sons") is the husband who has to cope with his new title of "First Man."
Polly Bergen becomes the first woman to preside in the oval office which causes her husband, now the first hubby, to be caught in some unprecedented protocol. Academy Award Nominations: Best (Black-and-White) Costume Design.
Imagine if the United States were to have a female president. For Leslie McCloud, it is a giant leap forward for the feminist cause.
For her husband, it's a hell on earth.
After his wife's inauguration, Thad discovers the stimulating traditions followed by all the first ladies of the past two centuries. He has his photo mounted on a wall with the presidents' wives of yore. His bedroom has a feminizing makeover that chucks his manly trappings and leaves everything pink and puffy.
Things turn even worse for Thad, because now whenever he is in the mood to romance his Commander-in-Chief sweetie, cabinet members interrupt his advances.
What's a poor guy to do'
