Overview
"BEWARE OF THE DWARF," whispers the hitchhiker to the beautiful librarian (Goldie Hawn) as he dies midway through a screening of This Gun Is Mine. Suddenly Hawn is propelled into a world of wild chases, bizarre attempts on her life, and deadly encounters with an assortment of weird underworld characters. Academy Award®*winner Hawn teams with Chevy Chase (in his first starring motion picture assignment) — and with hilarious results. Chase plays the handsome San Francisco detective who becomes personally and professionally involved with all the odd things happening to Hawn. Co-starring a pre-Arthur Dudley Moore in one of his most delightful comic turns.

*1969, Best Supporting Actress, Cactus Flower
