Pennies From Heaven (1981)

Bernadette Peters as "Eileen"

This heavily stylized production with lip-synched musical numbers follows Arthur Parker (Steve Martin), a Depression-era sheet-music salesman with big dreams. When Arthur faces relationship problems with his wife, Joan (Jessica Harper), which are compounded by financial issues, he begins an affair with a withdrawn yet beautiful teacher, Eileen (Bernadette Peters). Though Arthur and Eileen prove to be kindred spirits, fate may not have their happiness in store.
