Friday May 20th 1960 — Saturday May 28th 1960


A young man comes to New York from a small town with dreams of becoming an actor but the breaks never happen. He loses his wife and scavenges for a living as a waiter while making his theatrical rounds. Drafted to the war on the eve of his big break, he does his service then returns to the daily grind of auditions and rejections. When he finally does make it, he is dogged by the question: was it worth it?
