Nice Try, But.....
11 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

The cast is as good as one could hope to assemble in 1974. In this DVD, a lot of really talented people demonstrate once again that it is not possible for contemporary actors to get it right in revivals of comedy of the 20s and 3os. Either the characters are made too real, in which case they're sunk by acting out of Freud and the Method, or they're brittle caricatures seen from outside and above, in which case we don't care about the characters and the wisecracks just lay there. The right tone is never struck, not ever.

If the 1931 film ever comes your way, try to see it. The text may have been corrupted by Paramount's writing staff, but the performing style is right, and we don't seem able to do that any more.
