Blackout, Hotel Room

Teleplay by Barry Gifford, 
directed by David Lynch, 
Los Angeles, CA, 1993, 
with Alicia Witt and Crispin Glover

In 1936 a twenty year old woman and her twenty seven year old husband come to New York from Oklahoma to see a doctor in hopes of healing her ailing mind following the drowning of their son.  Lynch does old Philco Playhouse style television as well as any of its older masters.  It’s a shame they didn’t do it live.  I’m sure Lynch would have relished the challenge of it.
