Movie Info

This adaptation of William Saroyan's Pulitzer Prize-winning play is set at a rundown San Francisco waterfront bar, populated by a group of lovable eccentrics. This movie was originally filmed with Saroyan's bizarrely humorous ending intact, but the preview audiences reacted negatively.

Audience Reviews for The Time of Your Life

Good adaption of the Saroyan story. James Cagney is good. I don't think he has ever made a bad film. Good supporting cast, especially William Bendix and Jeanne Cagney.
