Crazy For You

DANIEL HUNTER is one lucky man.

His whirlwind marriage to JUNE “BUNNY” DINGWERTH, sole heiress to the Dingwerth fortune, has opened the magic door to a new world of fantastic wealth and privilege. He figures he is set for the rest of his life – until he becomes smitten with a glamorous, married Venezuelan model named LEILA BOLIVAR, at the exclusive Cinnabar Club.

Dan is obsessed with the thought of Leila, and bribes ROCCO SUAREZ, a waiter from the Club, to arrange a meeting. Unbeknownst to him, Rocco is also employed by Dan’s father-in-law, GILES DINGWERTH, President of Dingwerth Distinctive Designs. Worse, Leila is Giles’ lover. Dan begins a torrid affair with Leila, a fact that does not go unnoticed by the local gossip columnist at the Gateway Gabette, GABRIELLE “GABBY” KNOWES. JUNE DINGWERTH SENIOR, Bunny’s diabetic mother, is also suspicious.

Dan feels trapped in his marriage, and begins to plot Bunny’s murder. Both Bunny and June suspect that their husbands are having affairs. Bunny confesses to her new hairdresser, BROCK EDWARDS, and June confides in her long-time physician, DR. EUGENE HART. When Bunny colors her blond hair to match Leila’s black shade, and June goes into another diabetic coma, Dan and Giles become alarmed.

They are not alone. Brock, who is having an affair with ANGELA HART, Dr. Hart’s estranged wife, phones his ex-lover, MARC STEPHENS, and implores him to alert his friend, Dr. Hart, of Bunny’s secrets. Marc meets Dr. Hart to advise him, but the warning arrives too late.

June Senior recovers and returns home, where she indulges in a pound of her favorite candy, a tempting homecoming gift from her scheming husband. She dies within hours. Yet no one can prove that Giles told her about his affair and asked her for a divorce, just moments before presenting her with the candy. No one even suspects him – except Dr. Hart and Dan.

But Giles has made his own plans. After presenting Leila with an engagement ring, he offers Dan the presidency of Dingwerth Distinctive Designs, and announces his retirement. Leila, however, vanishes soon after, leaving him alone to wonder why.

Dan finds that Giles’ “plans” have disgusted him, and he vows to turn over a new leaf. Bunny becomes pregnant, Dan becomes the new President of Dingwerth Distinctive Designs, Brock returns to Marc, and Dr. Hart and his wife reconcile. In the end, true love reigns supreme.
