This episode presents a drama of the hysteria that arises when an international movie idol dies at the peak of his career. Billy Allen is brought to his small Midwestern hometown of Charity for a hero's burial. When a Hollywood columnist suggests a memorial fund to his memory, the bitter truth about Billy is divulged. Through the eyes of his widow, his business manager and his brother's widow, a less than glamorous and heroic image of Billy takes form. Billy's widowed sister-in-law proclaims to the mourners that he was the father of her son. Billy's widow asks the mourners to remember him as a fine actor and to allow his family to mourn him alone.
