The Greatest Man Alive

A comedy about lonely New York City widower Amos who, after going unnoticed all his life, decides to hang himself to ""get a little attention."" Amos and his helpful friend Tom, however, are both aided and obstructed by three strangers who happen upon the scene: poll-taker Peggy, law student Steve, and Peggy's fiancé, Harry. When Tom calls the newspapers to alert them of the upcoming suicide, Amos' plan is further complicated by an invasion of police riot and emergency squads, television cameramen, and members of the clergy of all faiths.
