"...[A] superb version of Eugene O'Neill's play....Loot out for a very youthful Robert Redford..."
The acclaimed film actor Jason Robards (PARENTHOOD, MAGNOLIA) made the transition from up and coming theatre actor to bonified star after his critically acclaimed performance in the now legendary 1956 New York production of Eugene O'Neill's THE ICEMAN COMETH. Along with a star-studded cast which includes James Broderick, Myron McCormick, and Robert Redford, Robards brings new depth to O'Neill's masterpiece of battered lives and failed dreams in 1912 New York.
Description by Image Entertainment:
Jason Robards became an overnight star with his indelible performance as the glad-handing, doom-ridden Hickey in the legendary 1956 Circle-in-the-Square revival of Eugene O'Neill's towering masterpiece. In his harrowing drama, O'Neill shines a harsh but compassionate spotlight on the failed lives, empty hopes, and perpetual pipe dreams of an assortment of down-and-out denizens of a seedy saloon, set in New York in 1912. Their sad, but complacent existences are rattled when Hickey arrives for his annual bender a changed man--forswearing alcohol and preaching a deliverance from "the lie of the pipe dream."
