The Country Girl
26 August 1999 | by See all my reviews

Impressive cast cannot deliver the goods in this television version of the Clifford Odets play about an alcoholic actor trying to make a comeback and start a new life. All three stars do their best, but the 1954 screen version still reigns superior.
