User Reviews

An excellent and well acted story.
24 May 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I love 1950s anthology shows and this installment of "GE Theater" is no exception. It's very well written and acted and I am sure a lot of writers would LOVE to see this one.

Bette Davis stars as Miss aspiring writer who is going to a workshop put on by a well respected editor of a literary magazine. However, she is completely shocked when instead of providing kindly guidance, he chooses to spend his time savagely destroying the work of an aspiring writer. He was very smug and began citing many examples in a manuscript that show how stupid some stories can be and he simply delighted in destroying the book...who cares if the author might just happen to be there. Well, it happens that Miss Burrows was the writer and she is heartbroken. What's next? See this excellent show.

I found this on YouTube and quite a few other anthology shows are there as well as at I loved Davis' acting, the writing...pretty much everything about this one. You really have to see it to appreciate it.
