Synopsis

In Hollywood with her second husband Alan Campbell, humorist Dorothy Parker looks back at her glory days as a charter member of the Algonquin Round Table, recalling her abusive bon mots, her alcoholism, her self-destructiveness, her suicide attempts, and her affairs. The one person Parker truly seems to care about is humorist Robert Benchley, who prefers to keep their friendship platonic.
