The Neon Ceiling is a 1971 American television film starring Gig Young and Lee Grant. It was directed by Frank Pierson. The film score was composed by Billy Goldenberg.



Lee Grant was set to appear in a TV film of The Price with George C. Scott when Universal sent her the script. "The moment I read that script I was hooked and couldn't let it go", she said. "It's a real departure from what is normally seen on TV."[1]


The Los Angeles Times called it "an extraordinary experience... a work of art."[2]
