The 62 Year Old Maxwell Anderson
23 October 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

In the same year that Maxwell Anderson wrote 'High Tor' for 'The Philco Television Playhouse' on September 10th 1950, he wrote a couple of episodes for this series simply because he was a pulitzer prize winner. The question to ask is does his plays have a natural home on the silver screen?
