Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Sir Laurence Olivier, in a rare and Emmy-winning television appearance, stars in the acclaimed National Theatre Company stage production of this painfully autobiographical work by Eugene O'Neill -- a play so brutally revealing that he hoped it would never be performed. In it Olivier portrays James Tyrone, an aging actor who has abandoned all of being a great performer and has settled for a being a hack. His bitter wife, Mary, has slipped into morphine addiction, while his eldest son, Jamie, is a drunk, envious of the writing talent of his younger brother, Edmund. These four huanted lives clash in what O'neill called his story of "old sorrow, written in tears and blood."
