Marty and his writing partner Robb have not had a hit since their television series, McCormick and Schwartz, of seven years ago. Marty's girlfriend Lee is determined to get all of them jobs writing for dipsomaniac comedienne Stephanie Smart, who wants to bring her fame to film and television. But Smart is too drunk to deliver and supposedly jumps off the 59th Street Bridge. Sudden plot twists involve a rhyming mobster named Vincent the Horse who comes to collect and falls for Lee, Stephanie's manager and his so called wife, the 65 year old son of the owner of the Concord Hotel where Smart broke her engagement and Smart's lying bother.
