Two Memorable Gems from Saroyan
22 January 2016 | by xWRLSee all my reviews

If you don't mind the format--plays staged as if for the theater but filmed for TV--these two pieces are highly satisfying. The stories depict scenes from the lives of humble men who happen to be unsuccessful writers and actors.

The plays are quiet but not somber, touching but not depressing. Saroyan's simple art is a good fit for a low-budget production that gets its force from the artful way it reveals the internal states of its characters.

And how special to see Walther Matthau as a young actor. He may look a little different from the actor we're used to but already has the charismatic presence we recognize from his later roles.
