Othello
8 June 1999 | by Coxer99See all my reviews

Bad versions of Othello have been made and there have been bad Othello's but no one even touches Lorne Greene when it comes to the worst interpretation ever. It's not even on a level of a passable performance; it lacked passion and bravado and vigor.
