Past Production - 22

by Charles Crodin 1953

This comedy takes place in the dressing trailer of an actor on his way down. In his last movie the horse got more publicity than he did. His current role is in a creature from outer space sci fi film.

A young journalist from Vanity Fair arrives to interview him and it soon becomes apparent that she has been instructed to do a hatchet job. The editor, her boyfriend, has an old score to settle with Roger. Our star also must deal with a dizzy leading lady, his disgruntled son, an eccentric make up man, and the actor doing the creature's voice who feels unappreciated.

In the midst of this hilarity, Roger learns the price of over committing to work at the expense of one's personal life.
