Tom wins a ranch in a poker game and subsequently strikes oil. Now he’s a millionaire and is pursued by Pamela, a coquettish golddigger. When Pamela goes back to New York for the summer, Tom hopes to improve himself enough to impress her. So, in the tradition of “My Fair Lady,” Tom hires a librarian-ish tutor named Florence to teach him to be more cultured, to say “get” instead of “git,” and to stop slurping his soup. A romantic comedy of sorts, “The Man with the Pointed Toes” is a sweet, appealing show that despite prompting bursts of laughter, feels honest and real.
This non-musical comedy is a fun twist on the “My Fair Lady” story about a young newly rich oil rancher who hires a manners teacher to help win the heart of a city girl.More Information
