This is a delightfully funny film, and Woody Allen-esque in the tradition of “Bullets Over Broadway.”
When a young woman wins a radio drama scriptwriting contest, her work is to be staged live with a group of professional actors. When an egotistical star demands changes in her role, it sets off a chain of petty bickering and new demands from everyone on the group that lead to further script changes as the deadline for the performance approaches. A furious scrabble to fix the newly-created discrepancies in the story ensues in chaos.
Entertaining and charming, this film is a textbook case of how to make a solid low-budget character piece.
