Were Millard Mitchell and Ray Collins ever young? And did Shelley Winters ever manage to look vaguely like a female? And yet, in spite of the moronic premise of the story, it must be a good movie which I can't judge properly as I watched a dubbed copy of bad quality. But Colman is huge in this and I give it 8/10 which could have been even higher with an original and better copy.

By premise do you mean the idea of an actor over-identifying with his role? I rather like it. I agree that Coleman is great in this, and I enjoy the fact that the climax of Shakespeare's play provides the setting for the climax of the film. I think an "8" is about right.

I managed to watch an original and great looking copy on youtube and the rating is 8-9/10. Lots of NYC exteriors. Lots of noir shots both of night NYC and strange (for the times) interiors of the theatre in the last performance of the play. Lots of work for CJ.
