Reviews
Mine: A fun, nostalgic look at old time television. Great performance by Peter O'Toole.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Enjoyable comedy about a young writer on TV's top comedy show in 1954 who's given the job of chaperoning that week's guest star, screen swashbuckler and off-screen carouser Alan Swann (O'Toole, in a tailor-made role). Shifts gears, and focus, a bit too often, but has many good moments, and likable performances (including Bologna as Sid Caesar-ish TV star). The woman O'Toole dances with in night club is 1930s leading lady Gloria Stuart. Benjamin's directorial debut. Musicalized on Broadway a decade later (also with Kazan).
