Have you ever watched a film and wished it wouldn't end? Where you loved allthe characters, adored each scene, and laughed at every joke, even afteryou'd seen the film so many times that you could quote the dialog? MYFAVORITE YEAR is that kind of movie!Directed with gusto by Richard Benjamin, the fi...
Peter O'Toole is at the height of his comic powers in this wonderful homageto Errol Flynn, the 50's, and early live TV. Alan Swann (O'Toole) is aswashbuckling, aging, alcoholic actor billed to appear on television - whichis fine until he realises that the thing is going to be broadcast LIVE,which is...
From the opening notes of Nat 'King' Cole's great recording of Stardust,this film just steals your heart. If you are old enough to remember TV'sShow Of Shows, live every week, this is a real treat. Peter O'Toole ismagic as an Errol Flynn like movie star, swashing every buck in sight,charming the s...
Hilarious film about a Sid Caesar-like comedyseries where the special guest is a legendary swashbucklermovie idol who is more known for taking to drink, thanforhis acting credits. O'Toole shines as Alan Swann, the swashbuckler on hisfirst live television series. Bologna ispriceless as the Sid Caesar...
The best movies have moments -- scenes so powerful, or simply sonote-perfect, that they live on in your memory after the plot isforgotten."My Favorite Year" has more than its share of these.Other reviewers on this page have singled out the dinner at Belle MaeSteinberg Carioca's (Lainie Kazan's) Broo...
Really fun movie, with a tone and style all its own. It has the samezippy sitcom character of the set which is its main stage, and thecomedic acting is often over the top. Yet it drives through some verysubtle and deep ideas about what makes a celebrity tick, the priceculture extracts from its most ...
The 1982 comedy MY FAVORITE COMEDY was a lovingly made period piecethat takes place during a wonderful time in entertainment history...theinfancy of live television in the 1950's (or more specifically, YOURSHOW OF SHOWS). This laugh-filled comic romp follows the adventures ofBenji (Mark Linn-Baker),...
I was born in 1958, so I never saw Your Show of Shows, and needlessto say, I never knew there was a famous or infamous incident involving oneof my boyhood idols, a very drunk Errol Flynn.Dennis Palumbo, in what is (sadly) apparently his only effort as a script writer, has taken thisincident and wove...
I had never heard of this film until today. In fact, I had no intentionof watching this movie at all. Peter O'Toole was being honored at theSavannah Film Festival and they had scheduled to show The Lion inWinter. That being one of my favorite flicks I immediately bought aticket. Due to some kind of ...
Unaware of Mel Brooks's uncredited contribution and of most of theobvious parallels to real life, I began watching this and waseventually surprised I had heard so little of this minor nugget. Whileit is actually true that the humour here isn't too original, theexecution is so irresistibly sure all c...
This was a very funny comedy set in the New York City of 1954-55, andinvolving the likes of three or four figures that normally did not havemuch in common, though three were in the entertainment field, and theywould occasionally (or almost occasionally) work together. The fourthwas less funny, but w...
It was quite a coincidence that today April 3, 2005, I first saw thisgreat piece of comedy "My favorite Year" as so happens to be thebirthday of Anne DeSalvo who played Alice Miller.I dedicate this comment to Ms. De Salvo on her birthday.This film is truly one of a kind. non-stop laughter. Peter O'T...
Mel Brooks wrote this based on his experiences working as a juniorcomedy writer on Sid Caesar's "Your show of shows." The first time Isaw this movie I laughed from beginning to end. Mark Lynn Baker playsthe Benji Stone (the young Brooks) whose real name is Stoneberg. He hasthe right innocence for ro...
Peter O'Toole, who's been known to take an occasional drink himself,probably had a lot of experience to bring to the part of Alan Swann,swashbuckling movie star of bygone years who's gone to seed. O'Toolehas a tax problem and he's agreed to do an appearance on a top ratedtelevision comedy show of th...
The supporting cast of this movie is almost flawless (Mark Lynn-Bakeris a little too frantic in some of the more slapstick moments, but VERYgood when simply being sarcastically funny or very sincere). With theexception noted above, there isn't a missed beat from a single castmember, and Bologna and ...
A perfect little gem of a film, which the other posters here haveattested to quite well. Peter O'Toole fans and those who can rememberthat time in our history would do themselves a great service in seeingthis movie. It gets shown on TCM once and a while (good on them), thisis where I had re-stumbled...
The other reviewers have said it all. One of them said that he gets choked up every time he watches it. So do I. In fact I got choked up reading his comments. When I was in 7th grade, (somany years ago) I saw Sid Caesar in a movie called "Tars and Spars" In ithe did a sketch called "Wings over B...
After 20+ years, the characters, the situations, thewise-cracks....they are still funny! The plain faced (matzoh punim)Benjamin Stone seems to meet his demise at several turns in the filmonly to be lifted out of the mire by his new friend Alan Swann. Thedinner scene in Brooklyn is priceless and is s...
Today we learned that Peter O'Toole passed away. So tonight I took outmy favorite Peter O'Toole film -- this one -- and enjoyed watching itonce again.I know that most people point to "Lawrence Of Arabia" because of itsscope, and indeed it is a fine film...although not one of my favorites(although O'...
I was in Germany when the film came out so didn't see it for the firsttime until 1984 or so, but I have seen it probably almost every yearsince then. I should have it memorized by now, but somehow each viewingI find something new and special. I've loved it since the first time Isaw it.There is littl...
My Favorite Year is my favorite movie. After reading about this movie,I put my movie on my DVD player to observe a few details and wound upsitting through the whole movie, enjoying it from start to finish. Andthe following evening, I had to watch the movie again.The beginning with the outline of New...
This is, by far, my favorite movie of all time! I was twelve years oldwhenmy parents took me and my brother to see this terrific film in a nearlyempty movie theater on Long Island. We had heard so many stories from myparents about Sid Caesar, Jackie Gleason and Milton Berle, yet I neverknewwhat to...
One of the greatest comedies of all time.This movie is overlooked but it's brilliant in every aspect. It is athrowback comedy that neatly replicates Billy Wilder or PrestonSturges.Peter O'Toole is a boozing matinee idol past his prime forced to appear on avariety show in the 1950s to pay off a tax d...
Exuding charm in every frame this is a lovingly made evocation of theearly years of live television. Perfectly cast in every role and with awonderful sense of period this will captivate you from the first sceneall the way through to the touching finale.Director Benjamin wisely filled his parts with ...
PETER O'TOOLE is the nominal star of this brisk farce about analcoholic action hero (based on Errol Flynn, in case anyone doubts it),given the fictitious name of Alan Swann. When he is assigned to appearin a live TV show as guest star, his reputation for booze gets himassigned to the care of Benjy S...
