BALCONY, THE (WORLD CLASSICS COLLECTION)
In a very special brothel known as the "Balcony", the customers live out their wildest dreams, oblivious to a revolution that's going on outside. Directed by the award-winning Joseph Strick and based on acclaimed French avant-garde dramatist Jean Genet's play, this star-packed film features Shelley Winters (The Poseidon Adventure) as the brothel's madam and Peter Falk (Columbo) as her occasional lover, who enlists her help in halting the revolution. A young Leonard Nimoy heads the rebels and Lee Grant is the madam's executive assistant, who longs to return to her former role as just "one of the girls". With it's insightfulness and delightfully fresh sense of humour, The Balcony continues to provide a great view of the world's ironies.
