This movie tells the story of Eva Lovelace, a girl who comes to New York City in order to become a great actress. With hard work, she succeeds in working at a theatre and finally gets her chance on stage after a great deal of changes and difficulties.Written by
One of the finest films to deal with American theatre.
Along with "All About Eve" this is one of the finest films dealing with the American theatre. I don't understand why it is a lost film and would urge anybody who enjoys great acting to hunt this film down any way they can. It is also about time it was released on video. Susan Strasberg was clearly one of Hollywood's casualties and it's tragic that the films she made after this were perhaps determined by the mediocre reaction at the time to this film.
