Bring on the DVD!!
25 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the most memorable and impressive performances I have ever seen is Robert Morse's portrayal in this presentation. I still think, talk, and wish about it some 12 years later! Why can I see "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" almost any week on almost any movie channel, but not a phenomenal work like this anywhere??? I don't buy DVD's as a rule, but this one I would. I was convinced that Capote had reincarnated and played Capote. I was equally amazed when Morse took a curtain call sans makeup - it was "Tru"ly remarkable. I enjoy the challenge of one man shows - Leslie Nielsen as Clarence Darrow on stage (this one is also not on DVD), Hal Holbrook as Mark Twain, and Robert Vaughan as FDR. They were all very good, but none stood up to the quality of "Tru."
