    Inexcusably awful. Not fun awful. Just awful. Forget 'Plan Nine from Outer Space' as the worst movie ever as at least that movie is still watchable. 'Staircase' is now undeniably irredeemably terrible and unwatchable now in every way.

    A very interesting film, A brave film for its time about two gay men who have lived together for almost 30 years. The film Richard Burton and Rex Harrison, Burton is badly cast as Harry but Rex is great as Charlie. Both are aging and struggling to come to terms with life, at the same time snarling at each other but when the chips are down both clearly cannot live without each other. The final scene when Charlie cannot cross the road to head for court and screams for Harry cements their need for each other. Both have mothers who are fading, Cathleen Nesbitt as Harry's mother is outstanding, and Charlie's mother has dementia and does not recognize him. This film is in no way a comedy but more of a film that documents the lives of an aging gay couple. The over camp at times is annoying, but at other times the actors just seem to forget and act and talk in a normal way. I enjoyed it.

    Homophobic drivel. Terrible acting by the principals. Younger men could have played the parts more credibly. Harrison's and Burton's prancing and preening are probably the high point of their careers, if that says anything.

    Has its moments. Has to be seen with the right frame of mind though.

    Had to watch it for the cast. It was a sad film that squandered its potential.

    This is a terribly underrated gem-of-a-movie. I have been looking every where for it and finally was fortunate to watch it, I wasn't disappointed at all. It was heavily panned by the critics (for reasons beyond my comprehension!!!), personally I never care about whatever critics write, I watch and decide for myself. It is a brave film given its age to tackle homosexuality and the acting is brilliant. In fact anything Richard Burton is simply brilliant. I really appreciate this classic, it deserves much more recognition.

    SEE Burton and Harris like you have NEVER seen them! To put it mildly, this is a film totally overlooked. Despite its homosexual overtones, this is still something worth seeing. If anyone were to tell me Richard Harris and Richard Burton would be doing a movie being GAY blades, I would have said NEVER! But here it is, or so it appears. Watch yourself.

The film, like the play, is about an aging gay couple who own a barber shop in the East End of London. One of them is a part-time actor about to go on trial for propositioning a police officer. The action takes place over the course of one night as they discuss their loving but often volatile past together and possible future without each other.

I'm half way through this film and think it's bloody brilliant. The acting is superb. I never even knew this film existed.. Thank you so much for posting. 2 Absolutely brave, superb performances by Harrison and Burton from 1969. Wonderful script, wonderfully skilled portrayals of all the characters by all the actors concerned. Extremely clever exchanges between Harrison and Burton. More impressed than I have ever been by these two actors whom I have long appreciated. 3 A little strange but enjoyable. It was not stereotyped to me and in the classic movies there was more talk and less action usually. That makes it great. Burton's father told Richard after he told him he was going to be an actor that he thought all actors were "latent homesexuals" according to his biography. Well maybe he wanted to prove something to his father when he did this movie. You had empathy for his character but you knew he was not that way!

Noting this broadcast, a month later film critic Armond White called the film "a rare Hollywood movie to depict gay experience with wisdom, humor and warmth", and "a lost treasure". 2 Staircase is not available on DVD at the present time. 3 It was panned by most critics, including Roger Ebert, who gave it one star in his review and called it "an unpleasant exercise in bad taste . . . [Donen] gives us no warmth, humor or even the dregs of understanding. He exploits the improbable team of Rex Harrison and Richard Burton as a sideshow attraction." 4 The film was a commercial failure that lost most of its investment. 5 Reportedly Elizabeth Taylor was shooting 1970's The Only Game in Town at the same time as this film was in production. While that film is set in Las Vegas, Taylor demanded that director George Stevens shoot in France so she could be close to her husband. This caused the budget of The Only Game in Town to grow higher than most large-scale, high-profile films that Fox was producing at the time.

    SEE Burton and Harris like you have NEVER seen them! To put it mildly, this is a film totally overlooked. Despite its homosexual overtones, this is still something worth seeing. If anyone were to tell me Richard Harris and Richard Burton would be doing a movie being GAY blades, I would have said NEVER! But here it is, or so it appears. Watch yourself.

The film, like the play, is about an aging gay couple who own a barber shop in the East End of London. One of them is a part-time actor about to go on trial for propositioning a police officer. The action takes place over the course of one night as they discuss their loving but often volatile past together and possible future without each other. SEE the trailer here: http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/10004689-staircase/trailers/10899435/ SEE the entire movie HERE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_iJqPsl8K9Q REVIEWS: 1 Wow, ground breaking stuff and how awesome for Burton and Harrison to take on such roles. I'm half way through this film and think it's bloody brilliant. The acting is superb. I never even knew this film existed.. Thank you so much for posting. 2 Absolutely brave, superb performances by Harrison and Burton from 1969. Wonderful script, wonderfully skilled portrayals of all the characters by all the actors concerned. Extremely clever exchanges between Harrison and Burton. More impressed than I have ever been by these two actors whom I have long appreciated. 3 A little strange but enjoyable. It was not stereotyped to me and in the classic movies there was more talk and less action usually. That makes it great. Burton's father told Richard after he told him he was going to be an actor that he thought all actors were "latent homesexuals" according to his biography. Well maybe he wanted to prove something to his father when he did this movie. You had empathy for his character but you knew he was not that way! [img]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/3/34/Poster_of_the_movie_Staircase.jpg/220px-Poster_of_the_movie_Staircase.jpg[/img] Notes: 1 Rarely seen on television, the film was broadcast by Turner Classic Movies during its June 2007 tribute to gay cinema. Noting this broadcast, a month later film critic Armond White called the film "a rare Hollywood movie to depict gay experience with wisdom, humor and warmth", and "a lost treasure". 2 Staircase is not available on DVD at the present time. 3 It was panned by most critics, including Roger Ebert, who gave it one star in his review and called it "an unpleasant exercise in bad taste . . . [Donen] gives us no warmth, humor or even the dregs of understanding. He exploits the improbable team of Rex Harrison and Richard Burton as a sideshow attraction." 4 The film was a commercial failure that lost most of its investment. 5 Reportedly Elizabeth Taylor was shooting 1970's The Only Game in Town at the same time as this film was in production. While that film is set in Las Vegas, Taylor demanded that director George Stevens shoot in France so she could be close to her husband. This caused the budget of The Only Game in Town to grow higher than most large-scale, high-profile films that Fox was producing at the time.

    It has great acting, but there's not one genuine emotion in this movie. It is well written, but the plot doesn't quite unfold into something too glamorous. Rex Harrison and Richard Burton make a great pair, I must say!

    Interesting for the actors alone, but it's just so hideously stereotypical... I give credit to Richard Burton for being better (in general) than Rex Harrison. I also enjoyed Cathleen Nesbitt.
