Advised by her gynecologist to obtain a dildo to save her most important, post-menopausal body part, well-known actress Melanie Chartoff heads off to the new Hustler store on the Sunset Strip. It is opening day, so she thinks no one will notice her if she arrives at 9 a.m. Dressed in a trench coat and sunglasses to assure anonymity, she locates the desired merchandise and finds choices of every shape, color, and size. But much to her dismay, a film crew from Entertainment Tonight has also arrived early to interview infamous owner Larry Flynt. As she flees the store, she is caught on camera. What follows is a hysterical encounter with her newfound and utterly unwelcome fame.
