The Iceman Cometh Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P90382~John Frankenheimer~johnfrankenheimer]]'s screen version of Eugene O'Neill's 1947 Broadway play The Iceman Cometh is set in 1912 at Harry Hope's dingy waterfront saloon. On the occasion of Hope's birthday, several derelicts enter the scene to pontificate on the lives they'd planned, the lives they still dream about, and the wasted lives they wound up with. The cast features [[Performer~P46149~Lee Marvin~leemarvin]] as Hickey, a loser who's convinced himself that he's a winner; [[Performer~P128119~Robert Ryan~robertryan]] as Larry Slade; and [[Performer~P45310~Fredric March~fredricmarch]] (his last film role) as Harry Hope. The Iceman Cometh was one of a series of prestige productions presented by the American Film Theatre. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
