How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying is a 1967 musical comedy film by director David Swift, starring Robert Morse. The movie is about twenty seven year old New York window washer, J. Pierpont Finch (Robert Morse), who decides that he can be the next big success in the business world, after reading through a copy of a book entitled ‘How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.â€? So Finch trades in his window cleaner for a briefcase and heads to the Worldwide Wicket Corporation, the business for which he had formerly been cleaning windows, for a corporate job. The only catch? He hopes to rise up the corporate ladder, you guessed it, without doing any real work. Armed with loads of determination and an oversized funny bone, Finch takes on the challenge in a humorous way, despite the hurdles that appear in his way. How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying was nominated for two awards, a 1967 Golden Laurel for Best Male Comedy Performance and a 1968 Writer’s Guild of America (WGA) Award for Best Written American Musical.moreless
