Synopsis:
Career first. Everything else second. According to vaudevillian Archie Rice (Laurence Olivier), the show must go on - even if it means stringing along his fellow performers, exploiting the hopes and money of a starlet and neglecting his own family. This is Archie's world, but not everyone wants to live in it. His only daughter (Joan Plowright) will do everything she can to breakthrough and bring him around; if only she can make him listen...

Olivier acted his pants off - The Entertainer review by jw

Spoiler Alert
19/11/2016

Brilliant. Olivier should have got that Oscar, but it was the year Ben Hur was released. Or was Olivier just getting to be himself? This film makes a revealing historical document of the working class holiday places of the time that pointed to another era much older. And Alan Bates in his first movie!

Time machine - The Entertainer review by NI

Spoiler Alert
03/07/2019

If you want to see what everyday life was like in 1950s Britain take a look at this. It's accurate - I know, I was there. An excellent film of Osborne's play with super performances. Captures the sadness of a fading career in a fading genre - music hall.
