Saroyan stares down heavily in this three-quarter length portrait, after a rehearsal for "Floydada to Matador", the collective name for the performance of the three "Americana" plays "The Hungerers," "Opera Opera," and "Hello Out There," written in 1939, 1940 and 1941 respectively. They were performed on at the Amato Theatre on Bleecker Street, 1955-56.
