A Child Is Waiting
Director: John Cassavetes Run Time: 102 min. Format: DCP Release Year: 1963
Starring: Burt Lancaster, Gena Rowlands, Judy Garland, Steven Hill
Though his improvisational style clashed with the more traditional methods of Judy Garland and Burt Lancaster, John Cassavetes elicited a different kind of performance from both stars. Though Cassavetes was fired during editing by producer Stanley Kramer, his touch remains on this emotional film about a school for developmentally and emotionally challenged children. Brattle debut!
