THE MEMOIRS OF A CROSS-EYED MAN

....are ingenuously confided by Thomas Ashe, a British schoolmaster with not only a Concomitant Convergent Strabismus-but an unfortunate nose- which have contributed to his celibacy but have not destroyed his romantic, quixotic soul. His search for a beautiful woman to share his life takes him to Tunis where he finds Miss Shala Delisle- the diva of his dreams- as star of a film shot on location there. Chance secures him a part, but determination brings him to Shala's attention as he attempts to rout his rivals and is responsible for more than one fraces. But while Shala appreciates his devotion, she cannot return his love-and he returns to England to have his eye (and possibly his outlook) straightened out. Back in Tunis, Shala has disappeared and Thomas' dashing desert rescue does not bring her back- leaves him to resume his search.... A rather exuberant extravaganza, wider than it is broad, and a robust type of humor, for a less substantial audience.
