I had to speak up on behalf of the party who really steals this show.
Among such a cast of titans, it is Malcolm McDowell who is the hypnotic center of this drama. With costars such as Laurence Olivier, Helen Mirren and Alan Bates, this is no mean feat. His is an absolutely stunning performance, full of invisibly subtle shifts from one completely plausible version of events to another.
Seek out "Laurence Olivier Presents"; this set is a treasure. Included are "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof", "The Collection", "Hindle Wakes", "Come Back Little Sheba", "Saturday, Sunday, Monday", and "The Ebony Tower". I was lucky enough to get a copy from my local public library.
