A mild young reporter comes to interview the current motion picture goddess as she lounges for a massage. He encounters a high powered agent who, for successive 10 percents of his soul, arranges for the goddess to fall madly in love with him, and even wins an Oscar for him. But in the third act, with little percent of his soul left, the writer manages to wrench free from both Hollywood and the goddess. Orson Bean played the original Broadway role as the ineffectual reporter, and garnered many laughs as he dodged the actress's husky boy friend and tumbled upstairs from one success to another.
"A funny writer who has another good central idea and a knack for writing hilarious dialogue. " - The New York Times "The laughs were frequent and full throated." - The New York Journal American
