A director is forced to work with his ex-wife, who left him for the boss of the studio bankrolling his new film. But the night before the first day of shooting, he develops a case of psychosomatic blindness.
opening credits are simple white typeface on black set to early period music.
I'm telling you, Val, you're going to muddle your way through until your sight returns.
Val: But, Al, I can't direct a picture. I'm blind!
Al Hack: Have you seen some of the pictures out there?
In the scene where they pitch the film to Val (about 16:30 into the film) the boom is visible in the mirror.
