A well-wrought play of disparities between the have and the have-nots.
A simple play about a retired gentleman (Ned Glass), set in his ways and very proud that he has reached an age that he can lord it over those whom he feels "under'" him. He is waited upon by an elderly waiter at his favorite restaurant (Sam Jaffe) and he, as is his way, treats his server as his underling. But something happens between the two. Slowly, as the two exchange life-stories, the retired gentleman realizes the emptiness of his life. This play, seen on TV in the early seventies, has stuck in my mind since then. Both Ned Glass and Sam Jaffe passed away in 1984, 13 years after giving, to my thinking, their most stellar perfomances in the little TV play, "Ememies."
