The scene-stealer is Robert Ryan, one of cinema's forgotten great actors. He delivers a superlative performance as the radical with dark reason and fearful purpose, bringing a new, almost heroic dimension to the character.

We see a fairly dazzling array of performances, built by Frankenheimer cunningly and steadily.

Eugene O'Neill's great, heavy, simplistic, mechanical, beautiful play has been given a straightforward, faithful production in handsome, dark-toned color.

The play is an inescapably great experience, and that fact isn't muffled by this film.

For four hours we live in these two rooms and discover the secrets of these people, and at the end we have gone deeper, seen more, and will remember more, than with most of the other movies of our life.

A series of powerful performances and some sympathetic direction from Frankenheimer raise this above most of the American Film Theater's productions.
