Fitzroy Wynn is a larger-than-life character, an actor with great talent with an ego to match. He has been starring in a long-running stage comedy written by his wife Lily. The play ends its run, and Lily's next project is a film which Fitz wants to star in, but he is wrong for the part of the young, European aristocrat. Stung by the rejection, Fitz disguises himself as a young, blond Italian actor with the name Roberto Terranova and auditions. During his interview with Lily, "Roberto" praises the stage work of her husband and seethes with anger when Lily's responses are less than complimentary to him. Roberto gets the part and the deception continues.
