Mr. Patman is well liked and has charm to spare. He works as an orderly in a mental hospital and does a good job except that he is beginning to believe that he is being shadowed by the irate husband of his landlady. When not bunking with her, Mr. Patman attempts to launch an affair with a co-worker until he mistakenly begins believing she has died in an auto accident. As the film progresses, it doesn't take long for the audience to realize that the normal-seeming Patman is just as ill as the patients he tends to and by the story's end is no longer to conceal it and must be admitted into the hospital himself.
