How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying
Our story follows the rise of J. Pierrepont Finch (a.k.a Ponty), from washing the windows of the World Wide Wicket Company (a.k.a. WWWC) to being its Chairman of the Board. Along the way he progresses from the mail room to junior executive in the Planning and Systems Dept. (and, through sheer cunning, to being its senior executive) finally ending up as V.P, in charge of Advertising.
The path to the top, while rapid, is anything but smooth. He must not only woo our heroine, Rosemary, a steno pool gal who falls madly in love with him at first sight, but at the same time he must avoid the tempting clutches of the delectable Hedy LaRue. This would normally be a pleasant situation except for the fact that Hedy's the girlfriend of J.B. Biggley, the head of the WWWC. To complicate matters even further, the bumbling, fumbling nerd and toady Bud Frump wants the top job for himself. Bud would present no problem to our hero except that he is the favourite nephew of J.B.'s wife. However, you mustn't worry. There is a happy ending for everyone. Oh, except Bud, of course. But you will surely agree that he richly deserves his horrific and ignominious fate.
