Artie Sherman has lived by his wits for seventy plus years. Among his achievements is his role in making his friend a successful playwright while making that friend, unbeknownst to everyone except Artie, the drama critic of New York?s most influential newspaper?at the'same time. This allows his friend to critique his own play and cover it with encomI'ms. As a result of the Times? review, his friend becomes the toast of Broadway.

Artie?s meeting and his subsequent falling in love with Rita Adler, a truly unusual woman gives him another reason for avoiding a painful, untimely ending. He is captivated by her great Asian-American looks and by her elegant style. Whoever said that opposit's attract must have had Artie Sherman and Rita Adler in mind.
