I have this version and I love it. :bounce: Be forewarned though that this is the one where the ending is changed. Still worth catching! Thanks for the heads up, fansmom! :cool:

You're welcome, DITHOT--and thanks for saying you love it. I felt kinda funny posting that when I haven't seen the movie.

I have seen both versions and while the ending of the second one is true to the play, I think the characters in the first one capture the time and place much better. The seem more Saroyanesque to me.

I've also seen both versions, and I agree with you DITHOT--the original is much more Saroyanesque.
You can't judge a book by its cover.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.
