Milton Berle makes a rare TV dramatic appearance as the domineering, dying father of four rival sons (Jeffrey Marcus, Richard Greene, David Garfield and David Rosenbaum) in this adaptation of Dick Goldberg's highly acclaimed 1978 off-Broadway drama. The play, a harsh examination of one family's jealousies, deceits and estrangements, is penetrating and profound. The performances are uniformly stunning.
