70's TV special, ace of spades, mental hospital
I recently remembered an old TV special that I caught a few times in the 70's, tried to look it up and had no luck. Perhaps someone remembers the title. Here is a synopsis:
The setting is an understaffed mental hospital and each day residents draw cards from a deck. The person who draws the ace of spades is allowed outdoor rec time. Lately one big guy has been stealing the ace from the holder and plot is about the craziest guy getting the ace and challenging the big guy when he tries to take it away.
No, it's not One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. This was only a 30 - 60 minute long show. I think the only set was the hospital ward's day room. Very low budget and looked like a play that had been filmed. Might have aired on PBS.
When life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade. Go get the oranges that you really want.
