The Man Who Came to Dinner, by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, is an uproarious comedy based on real Hollywood movie stars. When the sarcastic Sheridan Whiteside injures his hip after slipping on the doorstep of the Stanley residence in Mesalia, Ohio, he is shut up in the house for over three weeks. The result is cacophony, and the Stanleys will never view celebrities the same way. But in the midst of chaos, true friendship and love begin to bloom. Directed by Anne Nolan.
