Episode Summary

EDIT
The Legend of Lylah Clare
AIRED:
The legend of the dybbuk in which the spirit of a dead person possesses a living body and acts through it. Elsie Brinkmann is an ingenue discovered in Las Vegas by Mickey Mandell and signed by director Louis Zakin and producer Jake Resnick to star in a film biography of legendary movie goddess, Lylah Clare, who has been dead for 25 years. Despite a striking resemblance, Elsie has none of her qualities. Lylah was unregenerate and perverse. As filming progresses, Elsie begins to imagine that she is Lylah and becomes an evil creature. Finally, Elsie is scheduled for the death scene, in which the character falls down the stairs and is killed. As she performs the scene, she in fact falls down and dies.moreless
