Dancer Cyd Charisse in her first dramatic television role, guest stars as a former film star who tries to make a comeback after 20 years, only to discover that she is no longer wanted. Dr. Joe Gannon learns the depths of her despair when she telephones him at night in a desperate cry for help. Clips from three of Miss Charisse's motion pictures will be seen during the episode. A surgeon's (Joseph Campanella) efforts to save his marriage to an ex-film star(Cyd Charisse) lead to the death of one of his patients on Medical Center. A disturbing look at a disturbed woman's personal melodrama is diminished by the soap opera approach.
