Crazy for You
CRAZY FOR YOU tells the story of young NEW York banker Bobby Child, who is sent to Deadrock, Nevada, to foreclose on a rundown theater. In Deadrock, Bobby falls for spunky Polly Baker, the theater owner's daughter. But Polly takes an instant dislike to the city slicker, so Bobby vows- through cunning, razzmatazz, and a hilarious case of mistaken identity - to win Polly's heart and save the theater.
