Robert Morley is cast as Mr. Laffler, a gourmet who is anxious to be admitted into a private dining club called Spirro's. Ever since he was allowed to sample the specialty of the house, an exotic dish called "lamb armistran," Laffler has been prepared to move heaven and earth to join the club. Alas, when the curious Laffler sneaks a forbidden peek into the club's kitchen, he learns all too well the meaning of the term "lifetime member." (Trivia note: the androgynous owner of Spirro's is played by Madame Spivy, a popular nightclub entertainer who is also prominently featured in such films as The Manchurian Candidate and Requiem for a Heavyweight).
