Re: Release this movie
28 November 2004 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Ditto! How can we have vaults filled with clunkers and something with this power and grace remain unavailable?

I saw this television presentation over a quarter of a century ago and for my money, it was one of the most lovely things television ever gave me. One thing about Scott; he seemed incapable of turning in a bad performance no matter how vicious or viscous the material. But when

there was a marriage of man and material, like in Patton, or the Hospital, or even in (critics be damned) They Might be Giants, one was in for a rare treat. Now that this great actor has gone from us, can't we have his lovely work along with all those turkeys he graced?
