User Reviews

 
Excellent film, Dazzling costumes and brilliant performance by Jackson
30 December 2006 | by Tony RomeSee all my reviews

During the 1970's Glenda Jackson was involved in some of the best films, such as "Mary Queen of Scots," "The Maids," "The Nelson Affair," and "Women in Love." She won two Oscars, one for "Women in Love," and the other for "A Touch of Class," In "The Incredible Sarah," Jackson gives an Oscar worthy performance as "the great" Sarah Bernhardt. She plays the role with great eccentricity and flamboyance. At some points the film almost seems, campy and funny, but still well done. Douglas Wilmer does a fine job as "Montigny" He plays the role with compassion and understanding. Too Bad a major distributer did not pick this up. Anchor Bay should release this in letterbox on DVD. 10/10
