Jason Robards is amazing as Kaufman. Otherwise, the film lacks dramatic suspense as the only antagonist in the movie is Moss Hart's play. George Hamilton is all right as the lead, but not great.
This was obviously not an "A" Picture, more of a "B" picture, as the sets are a little chintzy, and it is filled from head-to-toe with actors who weren't known at the time, but would become big television actors, and a couple of movie stars who hadn't made their mark yet.
It's definitely worth a look for any theater aficionados, who want to see how the famous book was adapted for film.
Having read Moss Hart's biography, I loved the film. The people, places and events mentioned became real as the story unfolded. Not so much a story as a window open to a view. Enjoy!
great dvd -- been trying to find this for quite awhile.
