This low-budget film about raising funds to make a movie offers inventive plotting from director Jim Wilson. Alec Carroll (Ben Glass) is off on one misadventure after another as he beats the bushes trying to get sponsors for his independently produced film. His story itself seems unlikely but his enthusiasm never wanes, even in the face of the strangest adversity. One gold-plated geezer seems more interested in Alec than his film, and in another instance he finds himself obligated to go duck hunting in order to butter up his potential backer. In spite of promising leads (including an introduction to Zsa Zsa Gabor), Alec never really seems to get anywhere. Can this go on indefinitely?
