Synopsis

A semi-musical adaptation of the stage and screen drama (both of which starred Laurence Olivier) about a second-rate vaudevillian, still struggling at middle age for success and stardom. The setting is changed from the original British to an American seaside resort and has Emmy Award-nominated performances by Lemmon, Bolger and Sada Thompson, with Elliott Baker's adaptation and James Crabe's cinematography also cited. For Lemmon, who began acting on television in its infancy, this marked his first dramatic TV work in nearly seventeen years. It also marked Ray Bolger's television movie debut and reunited him with Allyn Ann McLerie, his co-star both on stage and screen in "Where's Charley?"
