Jed Jericho is a fading Hollywood star known for his envelope-pushing movies. Very concerned about his image, he is staking everything on winning an Oscar and all things going well with his fiance actress, Val. This is no time for his hidden career as a children's book writer to start taking off and ruin his acting image. He and his agent come up with a plot to have a meek messenger, Sidney, to act as the book writer so he can save face. Gags and jokes ensue when obstacle after obstacle are put in front of Jed in this silly mixed identity farce.
