(1960, Tony Richardson) In a seedy seaside music hall, Laurence Olivier’s washed-up song-and-dance man Archie Rice finds solace only with daughter Joan Plowright. Feeling stereotyped as Titan of the Classics, Olivier asked for a part from Angry Young Man John Osborne and got a stage triumph, his 6th (of 10) acting Oscar nominations, and, in Plowright, his third and last wife. With Alan Bates and Albert Finney in their debuts. DCP. Approx. 104 mins.
“A fascinating picture…Mr. Olivier is nothing short of brilliant.”
– Bosley Crowther, The New York Times
