Episode Summary

EDIT
A Perfect Piece of Casting
AIRED:
Century Studios is producing a based-on fact movie about three unsolved murders in which waitresses were strangled. The three young actresses at the talent school, Rachel, Paulette and Diane are cast as the waitresses. Kevin is looking for the perfect piece of casting as the strangler. David Evans sees the police composite drawing of the strangler and suggests an actor who resembles the drawing, Ray Wiley. After being cast as the strangler, Ray has a difficult time settling in to the part, but eventually becomes so immersed in the character that he almost strangles Diane Waring while rehearsing a scene from the movie. His castmate, Tom Hutson, becomes concerned that Ray is living out the part, so he dispatches Kevin to Diane's house to check on her. The real strangler is there menacing Diane. The police burst in just in time to save Diane. Kevin decides that Ray is still the best actor for the part and allows him to continue. Written by Bess Boyle Directed by Paul Henreid Guest Stars: Monte Markham as Ray Wiley Broderick Crawford as Inspector Harlowmoreless
