Man of the Century is a fast-paced, fast talking, farcical comedy starring Johnny Twennies, a young newspaper reporter in modern day Manhattan who is absolutely convinced that he is living in the 1920's. Johnny Twennies writes a column for New York's lowly Sun-Telegram. When circulation numbers hit rock bottom, Johnny finds his job in jeopardy. When his kindly but overburdened editor levels an ultimatum it looks like curtains for our modern day penny-a-liner. Johnny must turn in the story of the century or clean out his desk. When a pair of low-life thugs drop a lead in his lap, Johnny smells a scoop. Meanwhile, Samantha, Johnny's SoHo art-dealer girlfriend is developing a few suspicions of her own. Hot on the trail and desperate to make his deadline. Johnny is shocked to discover that Samantha is dangerously close to blowing his cover. For the rest of the scoop, you'll have to check out the column. Suffice it to say, Johnny's hokey-dokey day ended with a smile and a song.
