Not quite.
23 June 2001 | by See all my reviews

This version plays more like a greeting card than a vital alive play to me, I much prefer the Spalding Grey/Eric Stoltz/Penelope Miller 1989 version. Hal Holbrook is so folksy he comes off like one of those talking racoons from a Disney movie. John Houseman is great, as is Ford Rainey, but overall there is a self -importance about this production that distances it from you, and doesn't let you feel anything because they're too busy showing you it's a 'classic'. Better than the 1940 version, but stick with the 1989 version.
