Louis Gossett Jr.
I haven't seen this since it aired twenty years ago. How I would love to see it again, to see the excruciating, humiliating dinner parties with the "toads" as guests, greedy for their gifts from the host for whom they care nothing. The last party, so beautiful with the torches and carpets outside in the snow, has the one trick gift that will put an end to it all. The principals turn in wonderful performances, and there are a number of character actors whose performances are memorable.
Please, let us see this on DVD, before there is no one left to add commentary.
