Summary
Dexter King is an actor whose string of failures has forced him to accept the straight man role in a ridiculous stage play called "The Rubber Face Revue." Oversized and under-appreciated, Dexter is the embattled buffoon who eventually outshines his wildly popular co-star. His pathetic life is turned around when he lands the lead role in the musical version of "The elephant man."
