Act One

Boy, it's boring. I thought I'd love it. All those wonderful characters, Algonquin Round Table people, excitement, great repartee. Phooey. There wasn't any. I like George Hamilton but he was so dull I was falling asleep. Oh well. I do have him in "Love At First Bite," which is great, and the things Moss Hart actually wrote are still around, but this movie is as bad as "Night and Day," which, though it was in color, made even Cary Grant dismal.


I like the real quotes from the real Round Table denizens. George Kaufman said once that he wanted to be cremated and his ashes thrown in Jed Harris's face. But my favorite was Robert Benchley, who visited Dorothy Parker in the hospital after she tried to commit suicide, and said, "Dottie, you've got to stop this kind of thing, or you're liable to hurt yourself."


There! My criticism of the year. Now I can like everything else. Most of it, anyway.
