The chapter discusses Walters’ direction of Broadway’s By the Beautiful Sea, his run-ins with composer Arthur Schwartz, and his decision to leave that show during out-of-town tryouts. Returning to M-G-M, he re-teams with Leslie Caron for The Glass Slipper (1955). Chapter 20 presents an in depth look at that film’s development, including Walters’ collaboration with writer Helen Deutsch, producer Edwin Knopf’s interferences, and the inclusion of Roland Petit’s classical ballets. This chapter also looks at Walters and Deutsch’s work developing the biopic I’ll Cry Tomorrow, as well as Walters’ studio suspension when he refuses to direct Susan Hayward in the role of Lillian Roth.
