A dowdy waitress meets the man of her dreams when a matinee idol steps down off the movie screen and into her life. Unfortunately, the studio bosses are not amused as the character involved is their property, and the actor who played the role worries about the possibility of a paternity suit. Basically a one-joke movie, it's admirably worked out, offering a few barbs of wisdom on the illusory nature of romance.
