Kaufman & Hart’s first collaboration, Once in a Lifetime, is an early-days-of-talking-pictures mad-cap comedy featuring some 60 characters. The story centers around three young down-at-the-heels friends who quit the vaudeville circuit and move out to Hollywood to teach elocution to would be screen actors in the brave new world of sound. Their dumb luck combined with the absurd nature of the burgeoning film industry propels them to new heights.
