Additional Info

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 ten percents of the reporter’s 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’ husky boyfriend and tumbled upstairs from one success to another.
