Harrison Dowd, the Night Air

Andrew “Andy” Moore is a forty-three-year-old New York actor, who had brief success in 1940 as a composer of a song cycle, the lyrics of which were written by his wife, Kathrine “Kit” Slade. Kit, who is uncritically devoted to Andy, comes from a prominent Maryland family and it is her money that pays the rent while Andy searches for acting jobs. All too often, he is rejected as too old or not sexy enough for a part.
