I saw this one evening in about 1985 or 86. I was flipping the channels and stumbled on to the description of the show on A&E or Bravo (I'm not sure) I thought it sounded mildly interesting. I was mesmerized from the very start. I knew nothing of the story, the actor and just a little about Altman. I didn't see the ending coming at all. Brilliant writing by Frank South, Masterful acting by Leo Burmester, I have since seen three other productions that were good, but not even approaching Leo's work. And Altman's vision completed the picture. I just wish I could find this on VHS or DVD or even 2" Tape. I just want a copy, and if you ever see it, so will you.
