George Bernard Shaw was one of the great playwrights of the world. The BBC taped and recorded staged adaptations of his plays. He was witty and intelligent. His plays like "The Devil's Disciple" don't get produced enough about the American Revolution. Sir Patrick Stewart was the classical trained actor who did Shaw among other great playwrights. The film is a bit dated though. If you have to really work with Shaw to understand his brilliance though and that's the hard part. It's not a very funny play but serious and depressing at times. Shaw picked certain parts of world history to depict on stage. The cast is filled with great British actors and actresses like Ian Richardson, Elizabeth Spriggs, June Ellis and others.
