"Obscure actor Arthur Lake gets a lucky invitation to a lavish 1938 Halloween party, hosted by W.R. Hearst and Marion Davies at their famous San Simeon castle. Marion’s teenaged niece Patricia craves the narcissistic movie star Errol Flynn, who has been invited along with his current squeeze, Bette Davis. The hosts are enraged when they find Patricia in Flynn’s bedroom. To avoid scandal, they concoct a plan to marry her off ASAP—with Arthur as the target. Arthur and Patricia have barely met and don’t get along. Will Orson Welles’ War of the Worlds broadcast be a matchmaker?"
