Quotes

Narrator: The deed is done. The lover rushes from the place of assignation. Was it touch, or deep, thrusting consummation? The answer awaits, covered by the webbed hand of night. Yet, in this full-chested singing, surely there is triumph, exultation, mastery of she who nightly beckoned in pale mockery across space no longer endless?

Another interesting example of televised dramatic performances from the "golden age" of television.
3 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

I was able to see one production of this series (actually two of the productions for consecutive weeks) on the cable station of CUNY. It was the two part production of Eugene O'Neill's THE ICEMAN COMETH that starred Jason Robarts as Hickey and Myron McCormack as Larry (the old Anarchist). Robert Redford appeared in an early role as did Roland Winters (as the Boer General) and Herb Voland as one of the detectives in the last act. It was quite a good kine-scope of the production, and a rarity as there are few performances of Robarts in O'Neill plays (the only two television productions I can think of is the two man play HUGHIE he did in the late 1980s, and THE MOON FOR THE MISBEGOTTEN with Colleen Dewhurst - as well as the film version of A LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT with Hepburn, Richardson, and Stockwell). It seems to me that the productions were probably worth watching (they include Euripedes MEDEA, Anouith's THE WALTZ OF THE TORREADORS, and CHEKHOV's THE CHERRY ORCHARD. One wishes these gold mines of classic dramas would be released again (if they still exist). The one called THE WORLD OF SHOLOM ALEICHEM (with Jack Gilford , Zero Mostel, and Nancy Walker among others) was considered a classic in it's day.
