Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

Lauren Bacall, Marsha Mason and Harry Hamlin head a prestige cast in this updated TV remake of George Cukor's classic 1933 comedy of New York social manners, itself based on the Broadway hit by George S Kaufman and Edna Ferber. The writing and direction may lack the sparkle of the Cukor version, but Bacall turns on the style as acid-tongued pulp novelist Carlotta Vance, and the story surrounding various guests limbering up for a high-society dinner party offers sufficient human interest to hold the attention.
