Screamingly tedious version of the Sophocles tragedy in which the cast progress from poetic mouthing to ferocious ranting as they shuffle around the ruins of a Greek amphitheatre. Even Welles, looking like Santa Claus on leave from a disreputable department store in woolly wig and sackcloth nightie, seems subdued in his brief appearance as Tiresias.
