Movie tough-guy Lawrence Tierney stars in this film version of the famous Red Tapes. A young prankster repeatedly telephones a local bar where Red is the bartender. He asks to speak to such non-existent people as "Ben Dover", "Stu Pidd," "Pepe Roney" and others. Instead of just dismissing it, Red falls for it each time. He eventually begins to take each gag as a personal attack and responds to each call with fouler (and more incoherent) curses and insults to the caller's mother. The film, incredibly, is based on a true story.
