THE SQUIRREL CAGE by Edwin Gilbert


Email this review


Hollywood again, with some of the cynical characterizations of What Makes Sammy Run, the debunking of The Hucksters, and some nice individuality of its own. Tony Willard, snatched from obscurity as an unknown playwright, finds himself in an impressive office in the glamorous hurly-burly of the Milikan studios. A nice guy, and gulli Willard doesn't understand what is happening until his whole play is remade and the dit given to another man, a second assignment proves more unfortunate, and he is fired when tagged as a Communist for owning copies of Chekov, Doesteovsky, etc... A familiar arena of amusement and amazement again providing both, with the added virtue of credi of characterization.
