Description

“That’s right, chaps, remember we’re British!” That’s a running joke in this series, but it starts here. John Osborne’s screen adaptation of his tragicomisatiric play unabashedly retains an aura of theater, set against the evocative backdrop of a seedy seaside town. Laurence Olivier portrays a never-was music-hall comedian and philanderer, Archie Rice; Joan Plowright and Alan Bates, Archie’s grown children; Brenda de Banzie, his pitiable wife; and Roger Livesey, Archie’s father, the Colonel Blimp of the music-hall stage. When Archie announces, “I’m dead behind the eyes,” he puts a name to Olivier’s extraordinary feat in a role critics consider one of his best.
