Back in the days of nickelodeon movies, producer Max who has a contract with beautiful comedienne, Maggie and an obsession with filming an epic set in Egypt entitled "Heart of Stone", over-spends on ostentatious Egyptian scenery much to the displeasure of his backers who threaten to pull the plug. To stave off the inevitable and keep the disillusioned Maggie on the set, Max tricks his backers and himself as he completes his film and much to his surprise, falls in love. Elaine Stritch and Don Ameche orignated the roles of Maggie and Max on Broadway.
