The hit Broadway drama by Peter Shaffer (Amadeus) is vividly brought to the screen by director Daniel Mann (The Rose Tattoo) and screenwriters Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett (It’s A Wonderful Life). The inimitable Rosalind Russell tears into the role of a wealthy Bay Area matriarch whose already shaky relations with her family — including her henpecked husband (Jack Hawkins, Lawrence of Arabia) and “sensitive” son (Richard Beymer, West Side Story) — are further strained when they take in a handsome music tutor (Academy Award®-winner Maximilian Schell; 1961, Best Actor, Judgment at Nuremberg), who has one or two secrets of his own. Russell’s real-life husband, Frederick Brisson, produced both the stage and film versions of this gripping tale, considered extremely daring for its time. Newly remastered.
