Underrated Masterpiece
1 October 2005 | by (Seattle, USA) – See all my reviews

Not only is this an incredible work, under-seen and underrated, it is also the last work on film of one of American cinema's greats, in my opinion--Eddie Bracken. It is sad that this actor has not received the accolades he deserved for his body of film and stage work especially in his screwball comedies and Broadway musicals, and it is in this film that he showed his mastery and range. Miller's writing was crisp and insightful to the end and I highly recommend this film. Ashley Judd was excellent also. Watch this film with an eye on the history of American theatre and film. No playwright can match Miller, no young actress has shown more range than Judd, and few master actors can better Bracken in his power, comedy, or ability to move from the stage to the screen and back to the stage or from screwball comedy to drama as Bracken did. Anyone who would like to experience what I am suggesting need only view Bracken's work in Preston Sturges' films Miracle of Morgan's Creek or Hail the Conquering Hero and then watch Ryan's Interview. A wonderful capper to a great career. Bracken will be missed as will, of course Miller.
