  • Produced as part of the American Film Theater series, which produced films of classic plays with top-shelf actors and directors, this adaptation of Eugene O'Neill's THE ICEMAN COMETH is infused with director Frankenheimer's (THE FRENCH CONNECTION, THE EXORCIST) trademark kinetic style. Set in 1912, the entire film takes place inside a dive bar named The Last Chance Saloon, where its destitute patrons eagerly await the arrival of Hickey, who arrives annually and props everyone up with free drinks and spirited stories of his travels. However, when Hickey does show up this year, it is with a message of temperance and an exhortation to give up hopeless dreams and face reality.

    "...The actors are all on a 'wow' level....[With] Bridges marvelously holding his own with Ryan; Moses Gunn and Bradford Dillman..."
    USA Today

    "[The actors] all give moving and full-blooded performances. O'Neill's play has stood the test of time well...ringing as true as ever."
