Plot Summary
If ever a man seems lost in time, it would be Johnny Twennies (Gibson Frazier), a newspaper writer who talks, walks and fights like he stepped out of the Jazz Age. Johnny wears a fedora, swing-dances for wholly non-ironic reasons, and can't seem to wrap his mind around concepts like "cable television." But when a pack of thugs threaten his life unless he plants a fake news story, Johnny proves he's got plenty of moxie -- and that some ideas, like chivalry and justice, never go out of style.
