    Simply put, this production is definitive. As with Hoffman's "Salesman" and Gary Sinise's "Mice and Men" there is no reason for anyone to film this title again. Karen Allen is wonderful, Malkovich is only perfect and Woodward is terrifying. This is the play on film it is historically and theatrically priceless. It is a shame that it is not currently available on DVD.
