In 1974 I went to see all of the AFT films and I can recall loving every minute of them. Being a fan of Zero and Wilder from "The Producers" I remember being in heaven with this production. I have been renting the series and have managed to see only a couple

I watched this last night and found myself bored to tears except when I wasn't being jolted awake by Galt's annoying jarring music. O'Horgan directs everything at fever pitch. The great Zero was reduced by camera cuts and angles and by allowing him to resort to trashing the apartment and bellow. Wilder was a caricature of himself. The script was butchered - a pivotal argument about horns was cut but becomes the central point in a later scene.

Or is it just me, 34 years older, after 33 years doing live theatre, watching thousands of films... I wish I had left this one a fond memory.
