Another 12th Night!

"With Alec Guinness at his finest; how can anything, he is in, fail?
The story of 12th Night is so well known, it requires some pretty convincing acting, I think, to carry it off successfully. This production has the fine and convincing - even superlative acting, to achieve this unequivocal success.
All the principal actors were magnificent in their roles and even Tommy Steele managed to overcome his well known name as a 'pop' singer - just about! The inclusion of Steele into the cast was inspired - or flawed - depending upon one's view of the man as a singer/performer. Sadly, his well known persona shone brightly through his performance - which would please or annoy, according to one's view of this competent singer."
