A Movie That Makes Me Happy — 8 Comments

  1. I’ve never seen your cited movie, nor even -ahem- ever heard of it. I find R.D. to be among the last actors I would go see a movie for. But I know what you mean. He’s brilliant!
    I loved the ransom of Red Chief type movie he did with Bette Midler. Gosh, how swell was that? But I especially love, I think it was Tootsie?, where he was a struggling actor given the task of playing Richard III as a super-gay, hugely hump-backed, something else here, twit in an off-off-Broadway production. I didn’t even wonder how one would play that. I thought the orders from the director were the joke. But then, they actually showed Dreyfus’ performance on stage giving a soliloquy as the main characters attended. It was just one speech, but I am here to tell you, it was BRILLIANT! He took that ridiculous description and gave a swishing, heartfelt speech. Astounding!
