The Boston Globe


DVD reviews

LONG DAY’S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT Eugene O’Neill’s masterpiece may or may not be the greatest American play, and Sidney Lumet’s 1962 version may or may not be the greatest film version of an American play. But a strong argument can be made for both. The peerless cast includes Katharine Hepburn, Ralph Richardson, Jason Robards, and Dean Stockwell. Boris Kaufman (“L’Atalante,” “On the Waterfront”) shot it. Ralph Rosenblum (“Annie Hall”) edited it. Richard Sylbert (“The Manchurian Candidate,” “Chinatown”) did the production design. The disc has been remastered from a vintage 35mm print. (Olive Films, $24.95; $29.95, Blu-ray)
