Synopsis

In an age when minimalist performance in film and theatre is admired, the larger-than-life pyrotechnics of the great actor Donald Wolfit can seem mannered and ridiculous. Sherrin, with fellow fans Harold Pinter, Donald Sinden and Alan Ayckbourn, finds much to admire in the style and career of a stage legend.
