Not available on video/DVD?
5 March 2005 | by (Orpington, England) – See all my reviews

I saw this TV film in the late 1960s and remember being very moved by it. At the end, when George kills Lennie, I was in floods of tears. Does anyone know if either George Segal or Nicol Williamson ever received any awards for their performances? If not, they should have. I don't usually admire Nicol Williamson as he frequently goes over the top, but here he surpassed himself. And his Californian accent (to my British ears) seemed very authentic.

I've also seen the 1939 version and in my opinion the TV film is just as good. I'm disappointed to see that it doesn't seem to be available on either video or DVD, as it's an undoubted masterpiece.
