A sometime Broadway press agent and former scriptwriter, hes everyones friend, nobodys hero and a great womanizer whos managed to live over fifty years without taking anything seriously including love, marriage and fatherhood.

Scotties one concern is to make friends with his son, for everyone else adores Scottie including his ex wife, his friend and boss, and his doctor, and after a bitter, revealing confrontation, father and son are reconciled. And it is Jud who gets Scottie to agree to be rehospitalized for treatment and then organizes a giant tribute to his father in a theatre.Very funny, and at the same time a touching work.
