Sweet Bird of Youth
USA 1962
Directed by Richard Brooks
Running time 120 minutes

3 stars


Typical Paul Newman role in this typical 50s style Cinemascope version, scripted by Brooks, of a typical Tennessee Williams play. A quality production with Ed Begley Jnr in tip-top form as the town boss (he won an Oscar). Was re-made for TV in 1989 by Nicholas Roeg (unseen). BH
