An excellent "Our Town"
6 August 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a really fine version of "Our Town." It is much better than the 1940 version which both changed the plot and set the play in a real set. Perhaps what is most charming about this version was the set which had outlines of the houses in which the actions took place.

I especially liked Hal Holbrook as the stage manager and the late John Houseman as the professor.

Our town is a fine piece of literature and this is probably the best version made for screen.
