Yes, 1962 is the year of the party at Joe and Gussie's.

Just to be clearer, I think the three leads would probably not have been as good if not for the direction. Still, I think any good director would probably have gotten comparably good performances from them. Credit is due to Friedman for casting them. But too much in the direction is off. Still, thanks to the three leads, it's the best production I've seen of the revision.

It could just be that multiple exposures to the revision have worn me down.

I've been under the impression that most people like Rogers. I think he's a very good actor, but not here. Yeah, his is the major supporting player whose performance I really don't like. He lays everything on so thick, including the Jewishness.
