This light romantic comedy finds Victoria (Anne Jackson) the 34-year-old wife of public-relations man Tom Layton (Patrick O'Neal). Tom's biggest client is a big movie star (Walter Matthau), and Tom drops everything to insure that, while in New York, his client is surrounded by beautiful women, even at $100 a pop. Victoria wonders if she has lost her youthful beauty, and when a delivery boy fails to notice Victoria is naked in her kitchen, she is determined to find out if men still find her appealing. She travels to the hotel of the movie star, where she is assured by the virile star that she indeed still has what it takes.
