Actors and Sin

1952 NR

Dubbed the "Shakespeare of Hollywood," legendary film writer Ben Hecht brings two of his short stories to the screen in this pair of featurettes -- both set in (and distinctly critical of) Hollywood. In Actor's Blood, a has-been stage actor (Edward G. Robinson) becomes overly involved in his daughter's (Marsha Hunt) career. In Woman of Sin, a Hollywood agent (Eddie Albert) discovers that a 9-year-old penned the sexy screenplay he's hawking.
