Laurence Olivier gives one of his most riveting, Oscar-nominated performances in this bleak drama about a selfish, aging, pathological vaudevillian.
One of Olivier's best roles; overall production A+.

Olivier is terrific in this engrossingly sad depiction of a fading music hall performer.
Olivier is marvelous. A winner.
