JOHN DAVIDSON

John Davidson’s best acting performance (in the eyes of nearly everyone associated with the show) comes when he plays a nightclub entertainer who dresses up as a famous female torch singer. Unfortunately he is schizophrenic, and becomes her and him — at the same time. Even worse, “she” is a psychotic killer. Watch for a chilling scene where “he” talks to “her” in a mirror.
