Averback's 1968 film stars Peter Sellers as Harold Fine, an uptight lawyer who is uninspired with approaching middle age and his upcoming nuptials. Harold's life is changed forever when he falls in love with Nancy, a free-spirited young hippie who turns him on with a "groovy" brownie recipe taken out of Alice B. Toklas's infamous cookbook.
