Great film from a past time TV.
I saw this on TV in the 80's and I have never forgotten it. Having read Osborne's plays at the university, it was a pleasure to watch his best piece portrayed in such a brilliant way and with such great actors. McDowell, of course, excels as Jimmy, but the rest of the ensemble is on par with him. You wonder whatever happened to McDowell's career afterwards, considering the fact he was such a fine actor. One can even forgive him for having been in that horrid thing called Caligula.Too bad it is impossible to find a copy of this made-for-TV movie, considering the time and the fact that maybe there isn't any record of it left. Still, if you can find it among your old VHS tapes, give it a try. I'm sure you will be impressed.
