Based on a play by Charles Bruce Milholland

Adapted by Ken Ludwig

Alec Baldwin and Anne Heche starred on Broadway in this hilarious adaptation of the classic play. Bankrupt, with his career on a downslide, egomaniacal Broadway director Oscar Jaffe boards the Twentieth Century Limited and encounters his former discovery and ex-chorus girl Lily Garland, now a tempermental Hollywood star on the train between NY and Chicago. He pulls out all the stops in persuading her to return to Broadway in his upcoming show.
