The Great Mr. Nobody

Directed by Benjamin Stoloff
1941    71m    Approved
5.8
Perpetual optimist "Dreamy" Smith aspires to quit his job as newspaper publicity drudge and sail the world. But life--and his editor--conspire against him: Not only does the car he intends using as the boat's down-payment roll into the bay, but also his boss starts to claim "Dreamy's" better publicity ideas as his own.
