Plot Summary
Jimmy Brewster (Alan Bates) is a ruthlessly ambitious real estate agent who'll do anything to transcend his working-class roots. When he meets his boss's broke and desperate son, Charlie (Denholm Elliott), he can't believe his luck, and offers to pay him for lessons on all things upper crust. Charlie proves a willing and capable teacher, and Jimmy is able to use what he learns to rise quickly in the world. But when Charlie comes into some real money and loses interest in his pupil, Jimmy panics.
