The Oscar

0 Love It
Save it
Tacky Tinseltown soaper, logging the unscrupulous rise to stardom of an Academy-nominated actor in a succession of flashbacks, featuring numerous stellar walk-ons and dreadful dialogue. Co-scripted by sci-fi hero Harlan Ellison, based on the novel by Richard Sale, and directed by gimmick-master Rouse, whose The Thief contains not one line of dialogue, but who himself had a moment of true glory in co-scripting DOA.
