Trivia

A remake of an episode from the US TV series Playhouse 90 (1956) (Requiem for a Heavyweight (1957)), broadcast live by the BBC in the UK. Jack Palance (the star of the original US broadcast) was unavailable for this version so a nationwide hunt was mounted to find a suitable replacement. The part eventually went to an unknown actor called Sean Connery. See more »

Playhouse 90 jewel
27 March 2007 | by See all my reviews

"Requiem for a Heavyweight" (1956): Starring Jack Palance, Keenan Wynn, Kim Hunter, and Ed Wynn, and, written by Rod Serling, for Playhouse 90. Ninety minutes of nothing but LIVE television. The actors had to move in a constant flow from set to set, with all their lines and moves hidden in their heads. This was a serious play about a recently has-beened Boxer who knows no other life than that of fighting. His family is a manager and doctor. Now he's cut loose, and needs work. It's an emotional story about dreams, nightmares, and the real world. It has something of the feel of "On the Waterfront". It won the Golden Globe Award for the year, and put Rod Serling (pre-"Twilight Zone") on top. All the actors were marvelous. The sets were admirable for the conditions under which they had to work. A "Kinescope" of the broadcast (filming the t.v. monitor screen) was the only documentation. It is well worth your view.
