Synopsis by Hal Erickson
You all remember Greg Mullavey as the husband of Louise Lasser in the 1976 TV serial spoof Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman. But did you know that Mullavey once enjoyed top billing in a theatrical feature film? Judging by Marigold Man, perhaps "enjoyed" isn't the right word. Mullavey and Harry Cohn (not the Columbia Pictures executive!) play a couple of jobless jerks, living on the fringes of Hollywood. To avoid paying rent, Mullavey romances his landlady Joan Lemmo. This is not how he'd prefer to spend his time. No, Mullavey's goal in life is to plant marigolds from Coast to Coast. And this goes on and on for nearly 90 minutes.
