Unit Set/Multiple Settings

A mild, young reporter comes to interview the current motion picture goddess as she lounges for a massage.

Orson Bean played the original Broadway role as the ineffectual reporter, and garnered many laughs as he dodged the actress’ husky boyfriend and tumbled upstairs from one success to another.
