The Salvation of Henry Maxwell


A Gothic horror movie star. 

Out of circulation and out of mind for over forty years’ 

Now finds his celebrityhood beginning to heat up again. 

On par with such sixties standouts as Vincent Price and Christopher Lee, Henry Maxwell’s career and stardom came to a screeching halt in 1968 after his beloved wife Lillian was found dead of a drug overdose. Devastated, the trauma ended his acting career. Now, decades later, eighty-five-years old Maxwell lives in a fog of severe depression with recurring hallucinations. No longer in control, he believes Lillian talks to him in the garden at midnight, tempting him to join her in a loving embrace for the rest of eternity. He sees this as a final act of Salvation.
