My Favorite Year

The Internet Movie Database       Movie Reviews

A movie star is booked to appear on a live tv comedy show in 1954, and the newest writer on the show is assigned to heep him sober and make sure he shows up…

This is a big favorite chez otter…Peter O’Toole as the dissolute but incredibly charming movie star, Jessica Harper as cute as a button, playing the girl the young writer has the hots for, and a host of very funny people putting on a tv show that is based on Sid Caesar’s weekly comedy show.

What can I say? We completely wore out our copy of this on video, were thrilled when it came out on dvd. Everyone should see this at least once, a funny, charming, feel-good movie. Peter O’Toole is wonderful here, a serious honey if ever I saw one.
