Cast: with doubling, 7 m, 7 w

Leo Mintz, a one-time big shot Broadway agent, now represents bird acts, roller-skating kids who recite poetry and flea circuses. However, Leo's problems are just starting when a known gangster Louie DeMarco "persuades" Leo to represent his protege with no discernible talent, the lovely Christine. As if this weren't bad enough, Leo promptly falls in love with her. "They should just type up a label which reads 'East River' and slap it on our foreheads!" scowls Liz, the secretary and bouncer for Leo's agency. Then, to throw everyone off the track, Leo stages a "War Between the Sexes," a prizefight between Marlene, who is Christine's chaperone, and Maxie, a punch-drunk boxer. Lines fly faster than bullets in this Damon Runyonesque tale. Snoopy columnists, wise-cracking newspaper girls and even the cops get into the action in this rollicking adventure.
