The Man Who Came to Dinner
While on a speaking tour in Ohio, opinionated and arrogant radio personality Sheridan Whiteside injures himself slipping on ice and becomes an unexpected houseguest for a prominent area family, the Stanleys. Whiteside proceeds to make brash proclamations and offer his unsolicited advice to the family members. Confined to the house for a month, Whiteside drives his hosts mad by viciously insulting them, monopolizing their house and staff, running up large phone bills, and receiving many bizarre guests, including paroled convicts. However, Whiteside manages to befriend the Stanleys' children, June and Richard, as well as Mr. Stanley's eccentric older sister Harriet. When a romance begins between Whiteside's assistant, Maggie Cutler, and a local reporter, Bert Jefferson, he interferes with that as well.
