Can't improve on perfection.
20 May 1999 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

This is further proof that good (no, GREAT) movies shouldn't be remade. Richard Chamberlain, good actor that he is, is not suited for this role. Robert Mitchum's Harry was cunning enough to hide this evil streak from Shelley Winter's Lylah until it was too late. Chamberlain's Harry is so high strung, it's a wonder that Dianne Wiest's Lylah isn't packing the kids up and running within five minutes of meeting him. Maybe this film, the made-for-TV versions of WHATEVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE and IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE (remade as IT HAPPENED ONE CHRISTMAS) should stand as testament that you just CAN'T improve upon greatness no matter how hard you try.
