A masterpiece
9 February 2003 | by (Portland, Oregon) – See all my reviews

I still vividly remember watching the original "live" broadcast of this.

Frankenheimer's direction is incredible as always. The adaptation is as effective as "The Innocents."

It is also one of Ingrid Bergman's greatest performance, bar-none.

Unforgettable.

This should be released on dvd along with an anthramorphic version of

"The Innocents."

Another commenter noted that he found the obvious "live" tv continuity "funny." If you realize Frankenheimer was editing by switching between "live" TV cameras in the same studio, often set, these become awesome technical and artistic accomplishments. I'd rather see this again than even the best of cable television
