"Bang the Drum Slowly"
11 November 1998 | by (Duncan, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

This is absolutely the best video I've ever seen! The acting is amazing - both Paul Newman and Albert Salmi were masters of their craft, even back then. This was done in play form, and the transition from one scene to another was very smooth. The story was paced just right. I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys quality entertainment.
