Description
"In putting a superb set of performances on permanent record, Franchot Tone and his fellow players have contributed a solid and genuine legacy to the arts and devotees of theatre everywhere." Thus spoke the New York Times when Chekhov's classic drama of a country doctor's unrequited love came to the New York stage in 1956 and was filmed for theatrical release. Variety deemed it "probably the best work Tone has ever done." Other inducements include a 1959 Theatre Guild radio performance of the play (featuring and directed by Robert Culp) and a 1938 treatment by Alexander Korda of Nikolai Gogol's The Rebel Son of Taras Bulba (a.k.a. The Barbarian and the Lady).

"Mr. Tone, as the middle-aged country doctor torn by the discovery of his love for the beauteous young wife of the garrulous and pompous aged professor and his hate of the wastefulness of his compatriots, contributes a thoughtful, sensitive and wholly striking portrayal. Although he knows it is the fate of intelligent men to be called 'odd,' he is lucid and straight about his approach to truth. It is a subdued but shining performance that registers just as clearly as Chekhov's words."New York Times
