This film version of the O'Neill play really is just a film of the play. Unlike most of these that do not work, this is a wonderful way to watch two of Americas greatest performers work. The performances by Dewhurst and Robards are sad, funny and very moving. If you know anything about acting you can see how hard it is to have this kind of relationship to both the material, and the other actor is. Robards and Dewhurst are able at time to seem as if the are just speaking the lines of O'Neill, while just allowing the life to happen, not an easy feat.I feel all young actors and directors should see this film to understand what acting is.
