2 quirky Manhattanites crash into each other cute at an ophthalmologist’s office. Peter is a grouchy cartoonist/author whose vision is failing, divorced mother Theresa is also reluctant to plunge into a relationship right now. It’s not love at first sight – both have their eyes dilated, plus Peter constantly lampoons women in his work, which book seller Theresa knows well. Loosely based on James Thurber’s drawings “The War Between Men & Women,” and Thurber’s life, the film features animated sequences.

American GI Ernie Williams, admittedly weak-kneed, has an uncanny resemblance to British Colonel MacKenzie. Williams, also a master of imitation and disguise, is asked to impersonate the Colonel, ostensibly to allow the Colonel to make a secret trip East. What Williams is not told is that the Colonel has recently been a target of assassins. After the Colonel’s plane goes down, the plan changes and Williams maintains the disguise to confuse the Nazis about D-Day.
