Bud Cort's directorial debut is this comedy about the romantic obsession of Ted Whitley. One day, as he sits on a pier composing his latest work, a vision of incredible beauty Linda Turner strolls by in a bikini and Ted is immediately smitten. Ted misreads Linda's friendly manner as a sign of mutual attraction and turns to his friend Max, a notorious womaniser and man of the world for advice. The advice backfires with comical results, when he sends an endless barage of love letters and suggestive erotic poetry in an attempt to win her heart. Linda goes to the police and gets Ted committed to a mental hospital but the eternally optimistic Ted possesses the delightful satisfaction of a lunatic who knows it's not him who's crazy..
