  • The play's the thing - isn't it?

    8.0
    A cheerfully bonkers episode combining Southern Gothic melodrama, pitch-black farce and wild overacting by some distinguished guest stars. Unfortunately, the balance isn't quite right - the slaying of the unlucky acting troupe is rather forgotten about after a while, and the sting of death is generally missing, as if it didn't matter. So the story resolves itself into just silly fun, not quite as stylish as a segment of "The Avengers" might have been, when it ought also to make you uneasy, at the very least. Still, it's an intriguing premise and the no-holds-barred performances of Joseph Cotten and Margaret Leighton are very enjoyable. The business of the genuineness of the so-called Shakespeare manuscript is also rather forgotten about.moreless
