Buddy Bliss - he is of humorless sturdiness, an intent and hopeful (or shall we say hopeless?) believer in facts and self-improvement. He is an eager, grateful and nervous failure; he is dense and stubborn too. Some would call him "a nice, American boy."
Charlie Castle - the famous movie star, is virile and instant, sensitive and aware, although frequently he is apt to mask his best qualities behind a cynical, guying manner and certain jazzy small talk. He knows how to use an abruptly disarming charm and understands the value of candor. He is a very successful man and this sits on him with a certain relaxed gravity. He is a "going concern" and he knows and acts it.
Russell - he is the butler who is a simple, sincere man who finds pleasure in everything; he is proud and happy to be working in this home.
Patty Benedict - she is a famous movie columnist who is authoritative, cynical and assured, insolently appraising, and the world of Hollywood is surely her intimidated oyster.
Marion Castle - she is a smart and good-looking accumulation of woman and sensibility. Frequently her face wears an expression of bemused sadness. Normally she is an alert, intelligent, feminine woman.
Nat Danziger - is past sixty, with all the qualities of the president of a synagogue. He is tolerant, sympathetic, reliable and wise in business ways. He is paternal, really concerned for those he loves. He is charitable not on principle alone, much of what he says is tinged with sentiment and religiosity. His confidence and affable authority give him a certain foolish quality. He wants to do the right thing always. He speaks fondly with a certain grotesque cheerfulness. His motto: "I serve!"
Marcus S. Hoff - is a sleek, middle=aged man, full of amour proper, suave, ceremonial and grave, shrewdly pompous, but authoritative and powerful. He knows how to play a part and how to get his way. Easy and assured, he is not stupid. He speaks in a kingly tone. He is short and pudgy.
Smiley Coy - is tall and slim and is Hoff's perfect tool and factotum. He is elegant, loose-jointed and deft. He is completely competent, cynical, calm and courteous. He has many of the witty and amusing characteristics of the professional Irishman, including a certain atmosphere of loneliness.
Connie Bliss - she is handsome with lissome, fairly uncovered body. Any dress she wears looks like a bathing suit. She would be hard were it not for her disposition to please, but this does not mean that she is undetermined. She minces and coquettes a little, her way of asking for your favor, and she laughs constantly, without effort. Her washed-out candor covers enough slyness: hers is a nimble, jumping mind.
Hank Teagle - Hank, nearing fifty, limps slightly. He is smiling, tender and affectionate by nature and experience, his face hides a quiet gaiety and a sharper insight. He is unpretentious, quiet and mature, with as gift for devotion. A man with his own tremor, he respects a tremor in another. He is a civilized man in the sense that he makes you feel guilty or inadequate on no score whatsoever.
Dixie Evans - She is a product of a Boston parochial school, a poor family, several years of work in department stores, and finally four years of Hollywood as an actress. Frequently helpless and unconsciously pathetic, she has learned to appear bright and competent. She has shrewd if intuitive flashes of genuine insight.
Dr. Frary - he is an elderly, pale looking man with a quizzical, chaffing manner about him with a steady twinkle coming out of his eyes.
