Overview

John Mortimer's autobiographical play Voyage 'Round My Father was given a class-A TV adaptation in 1984. Mortimer, best known for his Rumpole of the Bailey stories, has fashioned an unexpurgated but affectionate portrait of his highly eccentric lawyer father Clifford Mortimer, played by Sir Laurence Olivier. Alan Bates costars as the younger Mortimer, who must deal with his father's decreasing ability to take care of himself. This was Olivier's second major TV appearance of 1984: the first was King Lear. Filmed in Britain, Voyage 'Round My Father was syndicated to American TV outlets as part of the Mobil Showcase Network series.
