One of the best dramas, I've seen, period.
5 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw 'Days of Wine and Roses' (1958 original version) on DVD, in a collection called "The Golden Age of Television" that is widely available, I borrowed mine from the public library. This DVD set contained, 8 original live tele plays that were broadcast live on television in the mid-late 50s. This is some of the best dramas I've ever seen. The DVD set contained:

Marty (1953) Patterns (1955) No Time for Sergeants (1955) A Wind from the South (1955) Requiem for a Heavyweight (1956) Bang the Drum Slowly (1956) The Comedian (1957) Days of Wine and Roses (1958)

No doubt fans of classic movies will recognize many of these titles, as many of these original tele-plays were made into movies latter on.

'Days of Wine and Roses' star Cliff Robertson and Piper Laurie in a gusty and realistic drama about the ravages of alcoholism on a married couple. I have to whole heartily agree with the other review. This is not only some of the best drama that was ever broadcast on television but one of the best dramas I've seen, period. Cliff Robertson's quiet brooding performance goes well with Piper Laurie's strong portrayal of a wife and mother who slides to the literally bottom of the bottle. Even today, both movies and television rarely show such realism. This was one helluva of a ride.
