A Highball Comedy of Manners!

This is New York, 1953. The newsrooms are filled with clatter of typewriters, and over the airwaves comes the crackle of live television. It's a city of of dance halls, arcades, theatres, burlesques halls, bars, lounges, and cafes. Orchestras play. Chanteuses sing. It's the city of The Stork, The Copa, El Morocco, and Versailles.  And on an eastside corner, a Checker comes to a halt. This is Club Cairo, home base for Daily Mail columnist Roosevelt P. Lane, and with him tonight is Haley Molloy, a stunning redhead who also happens to be America’s latest heartthrob.  The hapless entertainment columnist for the Daily Mail knows he should feel lucky, because Haley's the greatest girl he’s ever met, but he also knows that there unfortunately comes a time when every girl crosses the line from lover to liability, and now Roosevelt has to decide on which side she stands.
