Quite good.

In this episode of "Four Star Playhouse", Charles Boyer stars. However, he doesn't JUST play one role but many--something very unusual and very confusing up until the end--when it all begins to make sense. It is well done and worth seeing.

When the show begins, Boyer is sitting in a box seat in a theater and a play is about to begin. However, a man notices him and voices his surprise to see him here--why you don't get to hear yet because the play is just starting. Next you see a play about a dictator--and the guy is a jerk. And, the guy is played by Boyer--which is confusing, as he's also sitting in the box seat. The confusion mounts when you then see ALL the guys in the play are Boyer. What gives? See the finale and understand....
