The Iceman Cometh
John Frankenheimer directed this adaption of Eugene O’Neill’s play for the American Film Theatre, a company dedicated to bringing broadway to the movie house. The very essence of risky business, Frankenheimer’s 1973 film runs close to 4 hours and features some of Hollywood’s finest actors in decidedly un-Hollywood-like roles. Lee Marvin, Fredric March and the great Robert Ryan are all up to the task as is the fresh-faced Jeff Bridges just coming into his own with that same year’s The Last American Hero.
