The president of Gentle Grimes Corporation is the meanest man in town, a despicable rogue who has invented a smog machine which he intends to sell to developing nations so that they may become "civilized." Utterly, completely villainous, he spies on his competitors, advocates civic non-involvement, cheats on his taxes, bugs telephones - he even disposes of a company traitor by dropping her into a paper shredder! Who can stand against such villainy?! Heroic Dauntless Crusader, consumer advocate and all-around nice guy, who plans to expose the villain for what he really is - that's who! There are wild chase scenes, election rallies, long lost parents, orphans, dirty tricks and young love. The frenzied climax occurs when a demented Grimes tries to stuff heroine Little Saccharin into the smog machine and battles Dauntless Crusader in an uproarious fight sequence! There are modern costumes, a simple set, and even a few songs, if desired. It not only sends the audience home smiling, it's as timely as the next political scandal.
