I loved this version when I saw it when it aired in the early seventies. I had never seen the original movie or the play before so this was my first exposure to this work. I found Orson Welles to be perfect for the roll at the time. Since then I've seen the movie with Monty Wooley several times and I loved him and the entire cast in it. Being that this version aired around 40 years ago I don't fully remember it all that well except that I did totally love it and found it memorable. I would love to be able to see it again if they ever do release it to see if it lives up to my original impressions of it and how it compares with the movie.
