My Favorite Year

1982 Rated PG 1hr 32m

Peter O'Toole delivers a sensational knockout performance as Alan Swann, a booze-loving matinee idol -- and a has-been through and through -- who's forced into making a live variety show appearance to appease the Internal Revenue Service after they nail him for back taxes. Joseph Bologna (modeled after Sid Caesar from "Your Show of Shows") is equally memorable as the show's tempestuous star.
