Summary
Topol, Edward Fox, John Gielgud, Michael Gough, Patrick Magee, Tom Conti, Margaret Leighton, and Michael Lonsdale ground Bertolt Brecht's theatrical imagination in a character-rich interpretation of the troubled life and anxious times of 17th century physicist and astronomer Galileo Galilei. Under director Joseph Losey (who originated the American stage version of the play in 1947), The American Film Theatre's GALILEO focuses Brecht's characteristic mosaic of theatricality and immediacy into a personalized, cinematic drama that pits public responsibility against private doubt. DVD print contains the following special features: interview with Topol; theatrical trailer; "Bertolt Brecht and GALILEO", essay by Michael Feingold, chief theatre critic for The Village Voice; AFT Cinebill for film; Ely Landau: In Front of the Camera (AFT promotional reel-1974); AFT trailer gallery; AFT scrapbook; letterboxed; 1.85:1, enhanced for 16X9 TVs
