CGiii Comment

This is really rather difficult.....the 'legend' that is Olivier is a little threadbare if this is anything to go by.

Camp and ham are two words that can be easily used to describe both performances.

It may have been a delight on stage........but, under the close scrutiny of the camera is falls short........

The make-up department were lousy - and, it all hinged on the make-up department not being lousy.
