A work of comic genius!
One of my favourite play-to-film adaptations and a riot of a play with some eminently quotable lines.

Sheridan Whiteside, celebrity speaker has slipped on ice outside the smalltown home of a family he had deigned to visit (for a fee) and has now taken over their house, rooms, telephone with his requests, guests and gifts.

Querulous, sharp-tongued and used to his own way, 'Sherry' causes friction in the family, stirs up trouble between his secretary and her new beau, and generally attempts to force things to be as he wants them.

Much hilarity ensues. Honestly. It's brilliant. Whiteside is a fantastic creation, the old-fashioned setting no impediment to the language of the play.
