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+.
A stagebound tragi-comedy that remains limp despite Sir Laurence Olivier's powerful performance.
Testemunhar as estréias de Plowright e Finney no Cinema e observar os paralelos entre as atitudes de Olivier e seu personagem com relação às mulheres são, infelizmente, os únicos atrativos deste melodrama pouco inspirado.
Olivier is terrific in this engrossingly sad depiction of a fading music hall performer.
Olivier is marvelous. A winner.
