Everyone has at least one weakness. Mitch Wilderís is women. He has always been fussed over, coddled and protected by them. As a teenager he was the star football quarterback, always surrounded by girls, as he used his good looks and popularity to his advantage. By thirty-nine years of age, he hasnít slowed down. Mitch still sneaks from bedroom to bedroom.
When his father dies in 1967 Mitchís world starts to fray at the seams. His fatherís will states that Mitch has inherited the shipping company, which Mitch has been running for eight years, ever since his father retired. But up until then the company had remained in his fatherís name. While the inheritance isnít a surprise, the stipulation that Mitch must hire his stepbrother, Tom Fleming, is. On top of this, Tom will own half the company within five years. If this doesnít happen the company will be sold and the proceeds will go to charity. Mitch sees no choice but to hire his brother.
