    Commentary by director Richard Benjamin; Theatrical Trailer (HD)

    King Kaiser’s Comedy Cavalcade goes on in minutes. But guest star Alan Swann is exiting the building. Fast. “I’m not an actor. I’m a movie star!” he bellows in stark fear. He just found out the show is LIVE!
    Directed by Richard Benjamin and inspired by incidents from comedy legend Mel Brooks’ early career, My Favorite Year is a golden age revisited, a zany, misty-eyed tribute to TV’s early days. Academy Award® winner* Peter O’Toole plays Swann. Once a swashbuckling movie idol whose face was plastered on fan magazines, Swann is now mostly plastered. And it falls to Cavalcade’s rookie writer (Mark Linn-Baker) to keep him on the sober and narrow. Don’t touch that dial.

    From everything I've read about Peter O’Toole, he's basically playing himself in this film, maybe dialled down a bit. A great release.

    Superb! R. Benjamin's best directorial effort, hands down (although RACING WITH THE MOON would be welcome, and the already-released MONEY PIT is a guilty pleasure with some funny slapstick).

    Nice to see any Peter O'Toole film bring released, but we are still missing GOODBYE MR CHIPS.

    Great movie. Amazing how they made actual New York locations look like the movie was shot in the 1950's.

    Amazon is useless for Archives releases. In fact, they're useless for anything you can get from WBShop. Everything I try to pre-order thru Amazon gets held back for "1-3 months" or whatever. Suddenly they appear as regular items thru Amazon, after about 2 months, but by then nobody cares. For instance I notice just NOW "Corvette Summer" is available. It was published in June.

    Deep Discount seems the best option. The WBShop won't post to Australia.

    Love this film, one of O'Toole's most heart felt performances.
