How to Pick Up Girls!

alan king based persky

(ABC, 11/3/1978, 120 mins). The amusing adventures of an unsophisticated small town lad who arrives in New York, moves in with this swinging buddy, and surprisingly becomes an authority on the ways and wiles of women as he enters the world of big-time girl-chasing. The star here is not Desi Arnaz Jr., but Fred McCarren, despite the billing. Based on Eric Weber’s 1970 book.
