splendid performance, hard to find
23 February 2006 | by Joel HenckenSee all my reviews

This is an extraordinary performance by a wonderful writer and actor in his own right. It is witty and warm, containing much consummately quotable material, and it will leave you with a warm smile. I have been unable to locate it on DVD Region 1, and in the UK it is not only Region 2, but PAL format, which, alas, won't play on most American players. You might be able to locate a VHS copy if your library has inter-library loan facilities. It's a great pity it is not more widely available, because it ranks right up their with Hal Holbrook doing Mark Twain, or Robert Morse doing Truman Capote. I am hopeful that an American DVD producer will pick up the rights to it. If you know anybody in the business, do prod them!
