Great television remake!
10 October 2002 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

This is a great television remake, which runs so smoothly you would never know the entire thing was done live. The cast is great with Noel Coward, starring in his own play; Lauren Bacall as the dead first wife (very funny); Claudette Colbert, in a comedy performance as good as any she did in her many films; and best of all, Mildred Natwick in an Emmy nominated performance, she is by far the funniest thing. Also in the cast is a very young Marion Ross as the maid. All in all, a great television remake, a great example of why the golden age of television truly was golden.
