Live Television!
4 July 2003 | by (Asheville, NC USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this production on April 7, 1980 LIVE on NBC television. There had not been a live TV production on network television in years before this. I made myself a videocassette recording of this production off the air with an old 3/4" U-Matic video recorder. Recently, I played this production after having it sit in my library for over 20 years. It is the story of a family in Bradleyville Texas in 1962. Fonda is the elder Kincaid. The story revolves around Kincaid, Jr. wanting to get at some property that his dad owns. Dad won't allow it to be sold. He has his reasons for not selling.

The production, as presented on TV, looks as it should. It is a stage play with one setting. The Kincaid family living room. It is a good story, and all the principal actors shine in their roles.

After the production ended, there was a short video about the shows author. It showed him in various settings, and showed short interviews with him. Then Henry Fonda came on the screen and announced that the author had died this day.

I know that there has to be a copy of this production that looks better than the one that I have. In the meantime, I'm very happy with the original.
