David Warner plays artist Morgan Delt
Morgan on IMDB
'Morgan Delt is an artist from a working class background, married to Leonie, a woman far above him in social standing. Given to a rich fantasy life to begin with, Morgan goes off the mental deep end when Leonie informs him that she is asking for a divorce and taking up with art dealer Charles Napier (Stephens), a man more befitting her class. Thoroughly gone around the bend, Morgan enacts a series of bizarre gags and stunts in a campaign to win Leonie back, including putting a skeleton in her bed and crashing her wedding dressed as a gorilla (the film segues into brief extracts from the original King Kong film). His antics get Morgan arrested and committed to an insane asylum, where he embraces his mother's ardent communist beliefs.'
