Joseph Cotton is well cast and superb as an arrogant self obsessed movie star struggling to come to terms with his waning popularity and seeking comfort by hitting the bottle. He steals the show as a truly loathsome character and its difficult to sympathise with someone who is the creator of his own downfall. I wonder how many real life stars this story was based on. Highly watchable.
