Act II Rosemary, now Finch's secretary but playing second fiddle to his career ambitions, is on the point of resigning but is persuaded by her friend SMITTY and the rest of the girls to reconsider. The object of her affections faces a critical deadline to come up with a revolutionary advertising plan (1 BELIEVE IN YOU) and is deluded by Frump into proposing a TV treasure hunt. Confident this idea will receive a scornful reception, Frump looks forward to Finch's downfall, but J.13. seizes on it to solve his own problem - keeping Hedy U Rue happy - and Finch survives. When Hedy drops a clanger on the live TV programme by revealing where the treasure is hidden, Finch again seems destined for the chop but appeals to his betters' finer instincts (THE BROTHERHOOD OF MAN). Fate sticks by him in the shape of MR. WOMPER, the Chairman of the Board; having also started his career washing windows, he takes an immediate fancy to our hero and, coincidentally, to Hedy La Rue, thus solving both their career problems. As for Frump, he inherits the window washing business, and the book. MUSICAL NUMBERS ACT ONE 1. OVERTURE 1a OPENING — ACT ONE 2. HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING … (Finch) 3.
