Unforgettable
4 December 2004 | by dandolaSee all my reviews

I saw this nearly thirty years ago on, I believe, Jordanian television. I was living in Israel at the time and was fortunate enough to pick up programming from Jordan, which carried wonderful programs from the UK. In any event, I have never forgotten this movie or teleplay and have searched for it assiduously since gaining access to the Internet. Laurence Olivier plays the senile grandfather, a retired haberdasher or tailor, and Joan Plowright is either his daughter or is married to Olivier's son. The play takes place over Saturday, Sunday, Monday and the plot line includes suspected adultery, a missing hat, and the usual generational miscommunications. It is screamingly funny in places and wonderfully touching in others. Would that I could find a videotape of this play I'd be a happy girl indeed.
