"...A top-notch adaptation....Newman gives another gritty performance....Both Newman and Page played these roles on Broadway and their chemistry is astonishing..."
"Paul Newman stars as Chance Wayne, who aims to get what and who he wants, and he doesn't intend to let anyone stop him....The soundtrack does sound good."
Description by OLDIES.com:
Paul Newman, Best Actress Oscar nominee Geraldine Page, Rip Torn and Madeleine Sherwood recreate their stage roles and Ed Begley gives an Oscar-winning portrayal as the town's corrupt political boss in a bravura film version of Tennessee Williams' Broadway hit. Sex, money, hypocrisy, and financial and emotional blackmail are all familiar elements in Williams' literary realm and combine powerfully in Sweet Bird Of Youth as Chance battles his private demons in a desperate bid to redeem his wasted life and recapture his lost Sweet Bird Of Youth.
Description by Warner Home Video:
- Geraldine Page, Paul Newman, Madeleine Sherwood, and Rip Torn all re-created their roles from the original Broadway production.
