Hal (think Groucho at his zaniest) is prepared to do anything to get money from the rich Mrs. Witherspoon to produce a musical. She's in the hospital to find out why she's so tired.
The doctor in charge, a charming but serious Dr. Butz has called for a psychiatrist to help. Aided by his cynical assistant, Cassy, and an unappreciated orderly (Mark) enamored of Cassy, Hal pretends to be the psychiatrist in order to have time with Witherspoon to pitch his show.
Butz is suspicious of his methods but has heard he's eccentric. In the process he finds a way to revive Witherspoon's energy and slowly gets Dr. Butz's interest. Hal has trouble staying focused on the objective, switching often and rapidly from zany romantic, to serious psychiatrist, to hustling producer and back again. And, his would-be pigeon is sharper than he realizes.
Repeated attempts by Hal to have time with Witherspoon leads to wild chases with a wheel-chair, a waltz that gets out of hand and almost everyone trying to hide from everyone at one time or another.
