The World's Greatest Lover is a 1977 comedy written and directed by Gene Wilder. Rudy Hickman (Gene Wilder) is a neurotic, unhappy baker living in Milwaukee during the 1920s. He dreams of bigger and better things for his life. Meanwhile, over in Hollywood, studio head Zitz (Dom DeLuise) worries that Rainbow Studios is losing money. Zitz figures that it is too difficult to compete against Rudolph Valentino (Gene Wilder), the renowned heartthrob. As a solution, Rainbow Studios holds a contest to find the next great silver screen idol and recoup their losses. When Rudy Hickman hears about the contest, he decides to try his luck as the world's greatest lover. With his reluctant wife, Annie (Carol Kane), in tow, Rudy heads out to sunny California to compete for a chance at fame, fortune and the love of every woman in the country. What Rudy and Annie cannot anticipate is that Annie will bump into the actual Rudolph Valentino, sparking tensions that might mean Rudy Hickman loses everything.moreless
