The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-In-The-Moon Marigolds 02/24/18

Twilight Time

Of all the ‘depressed relationship’ dramas of the early ’70s, this may be the most rewarding. It also sports one of the longest titles on record. Paul Zindel’s award-winning play gets a marvelous adaptation for the screen, thanks to Alvin Sargent, Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward. There’s also the stealth input of the star couple’s daughter Nell Potts, whose restrained performance is the happy opposite of mawkish and maudlin. With Roberta Wallach, Judith Lowry and David Spielberg. On Blu-ray from Twilight Time.
