Summary
The greatest actor of the 20th century presents six works by great 20th century playwrights. A collection of filmed stage plays from the British television program. Cat on a hot tin roof: A rich plantation owner and his family come to grips with their greed, envy, and self-delusion. -- The collection: What did, or did not, take place in a Leeds hotel ruffles the lives of four habitués of fashionable London. -- Hindle wakes: An independent young mill worker refuses to bow to convention after an indiscretion with the boss's son. -- Come back, Little Sheba: Loss and regret bubble to the surface of a trouble marriage after a young boarder moves in. Saturday, Sunday, Monday: A monumental argument erupts, smolders, and subsides over a weekend in the life of a boisterous Italian family. -- The ebony tower: A young artist studying the work of a great painter becomes intrigued by the elderly man's female companions
