Masterpiece, but difficult to find
This is one of the all-time masterpieces directed by Carol Reed. Mia Farrow is fascinating, Topol is funny and tender-hearted, and John Barry's music is simply superb. Peter Shaffer's script is charming with a good twist and warmth, which I actually prefer to his other (more popular but colder) works.
I'm very surprised to find out that it's never been released as Video or DVD. Is there any copyright issue here? Anyway, we should complain to Universal and urge them to resolve the problem and release DVD as soon as possible. Many people are waiting in a long line to watch it again!
