Eric Busch, a novelist/playwright, and his wife, Janet, go to New York where he arranges to have Matt Saxon, who has a reputation for ruthlessness, produce his play. Saxon insists on so many meetings, changes and revisions that it cause a rift between Eric and Janet. Saxon goes to Hollywood to get a prominent actor to play the lead but the actor, no fan of Saxon, declines. Saxon then deliberately robs his own girlfriend of her chance in Hollywood. The actor then comes to New York and offers to do the play, if someone other than Saxon is the producer. Written by

Our play group, The Frank Moeschen Club, was treating us to an afternoon at the movies, it was a story about tank battles of WWII! Anyhow, we got into the theater, I believe it was the Loew's (in those days they still used apostrophes) 86th St., and...where was the tank battle. This d--n thing was playing instead. We waited and waited for it to finish, so the second feature (they also had double bills in those days and, up in Harlem, TRIPLE features, altho those were mostly 1930s westerns from studios like Monogram or a place called "PRC.") But I digress. By the time this vile thing finally did get thru, sorry time's up, your parents are waiting for you at home. You can imagine the lifelong annoyance I have had just seeing the name Saxon Charm.
