In this made-for-television classic, Mickey Rooney stars as a viciously egotistical TV comic who steps on everyone who stands in his way as he prepares a broadcast special. Based on Ernest Lehman's novelette, and adapted for television by Rod Serling. Originally aired on Playhouse 90 on Valentine's Day, 1957.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
