You Can't Take It With You
9 June 1999 | by (Marietta, OH) – See all my reviews

Robards carries this lively remake of the Kaufman and Hart play with the Oscar winner easily fitting the shoes of Grandpa Martin Vanderof. Robards had just finished a run of the play on the stage that had also co-starred James Coco as the mad Russian ballet instructor, Kolenkhov. Here, it is played by Rose. The play still runs quick and has a lot of fun. It's one of those gems that should be in the Comedy Hall of Fame.
