Did You Know?


This teleplay was adapted from Gavin Lambert's short story of the same name, included in his famous book about Hollywood, "The Slide Area". Over thirty years after the book was published, Lambert admitted that the egotistical film star in the story, Julie Forbes, was a caricature of Joan Crawford, and that the director, Cliff Harriston, was a disguised portrait of his friend Nicholas Ray, who had directed Crawford in "Johnny Guitar".
