Allan Felix has this thing about Humphrey Bogart. If only he had some of Bogart's technique... Bookish and insecure with women, Allan's hero, Bogey comes to the rescue, with a fantastic bevy of beauties played out in hilarious fantasy sequences. Fixed up by friends with gorgeous women, he's so awkward that even Bogey's patience is tried. Allan mostly resembles a disheveled, friendly dog and this is what ultimately charms his best friend's wife, Linda into bed. It's a tough life, making it in the world of beautiful people but if you can't be a hero it helps to have one...

I remember seeing this movie on a weekend matinee movie on some local station when I was in my mid teens and absolutely loved it.  It wasn't until about 10 years later that I learned it was a stage play before it became a movie, after having read the show and noticing the slight differences between stage and screen I fell in love with the story all over again. The one-liners, the morals, and learning to love yourself are just some of the poignant subtle messages that permeate this classic tale.  The way Allen weaves classic Bogart lines into this piece are seamless.  If you're looking for classic show or a period piece (1969) or just a good read I highly suggest this piece.
