This fast paced satire of American politics by a master of farce concerns the machinations of a particularly inventive campaign manager to elect Governor Johnny, a devout drunk and skirt chaser, to the U.S. Senate. When he dies at Pearl's house of ill repute on election day, the manager must devise a way to make people think he died from joy of being elected.
