The best thing this version has, of course, is Paul Newman, but the rest of the cast is pretty good as well. The setting is very static so you don't get a good feeling of the whole town or the period. But that is the fault of the cinematographer and the set designer. I wish there were more versions of great Broadway plays available as DVD's. To keep a record of great performances and as a teaching device for young people in school who live far from a "real stage performance".
