Generally Well Done
3 January 2013 | by (Boston, Ma) – See all my reviews

Well-acted by an usual cast including Eli Wallach, Jack Warden and Boris Karloff.

Actually Karloff comes off the best and well-deserved his Tony nomination for the Broadway production.

The others unfortunately don't come off as well, with Warden and Wallach unlikely choices for there roles. And the usually reliable Harris is way over the top and much too theatrical for a TV film, but one can chalk it up to unfamiliarity with the medium. Rathbone has a nice little part as the Inquisitor.

Generally it's well directed by the reliable Schaeffer.
