Eugene O’Neill’s bear of a play is fully embraced by Frankenheimer and his all-in cast. The time is 1912, the place a saloon in NYC, the customers largely from the flophouse upstairs. A more flush regular, salesman Hickey (Lee Marvin), materializes with the intent of motivating his pals to change their destinies. Frederic March and Robert Ryan, in their screen farewells, set the bar for the ensemble. We are presenting the full four-hour cut, with its two intermissions.
