Additional Info

A funny comedy including absurd mistaken identities and zany door ballets. The lovers are both males: a professional football player and a British schoolmaster. Their attempts to keep their secret are only part of the crazy quilt plot. Enter Alice, on the lam from the welfare office. She and her young son elect to hide out in our lovers' apartment. Added complications: the schoolmaster's about to be deported from the U.S.A. and the football player gets a surprise visit from his wacky mother. Escalates from quiet insanity to hysterical confusion when everybody arrives at the apartment at once.
