Anton Chekhov's classic drama of a country doctor's unrequited love came to the New York stage in 1956, and then the play was filmed for a theatrical release. With a powerful performance by star Franchot Tone (who also co-directed), superb support by Mary Perry, Peggy McCay and George Voskovec in the title role, and music by multi-Oscar nominee Werner Janssen, this amazing artifact veritably puts you in a 1956 legit theater seat watching "probably the best work Tone has ever done" (Variety).
