Image result for my favorite year 1982

Very funny and nostalgic comedy about the golden age of television, in the 1950s, when American families first fell in love with this new form of entertainment. Benjy Stone works as a writer on one of T.V’s biggest shows “Comedy Cavalcade,” and, being the errand boy that he is, gets assigned to keeping the programs’s big guest star, matinee idol Alan Swann (O’Toole), out of trouble. Peter O’Toole is so good here. As ridiculous and wonderfully over the top as he is at times in the role, it always seems perfectly in tune with the character. He’s also incredibly moving at other times.
