Trivia

This production was produced by the Williamstown Theatre Festival as a stage play. It was filmed for television by A&E as one of their 'A&E Stage' attempts to support arts and cultural performances. Unfortunately, the melodramatic acting style that works in a 600-seat theater didn't translate well to the media of television, particularly in close-ups. See more »

I have a huge collection of Holmes films on DVD and this has to be among the Top Ten. Recorded in front of a live audience this is not just a filmed play, it is a real film. Langella is magnificent and is ably supported by a great cast. If only all drama could be this good. It is no surprise that this play has been a hit for about 100 yrs, it crackles with superb and witty dialogue. The plot is well constructed and has hardly aged at all. Langella and co must be proud to have worked on this production. Prior to this Langella had been a wonderful Dracula on both stage and screen. What a wonderfully talented actor he is.
