On the eve and day of the 1968 election, Warren Beatty is a seemingly gay hairdresser who, after banks have turned him down, seeks financial backing from corrupt businessman Lester Karp in order to open his own salon. During that same span he sleeps with Lester's wife, mistress, and nubile daughter. Superior bedroom farce done in remarkably good taste.
