The second Olivier "Tribute to American Theatre" brought to television Inge's play about a sensitive man trying to fight alcoholism and understand his loving but inadequate wife who mourns the disappearance of her youth and her little dog, (whom she called "little Sheba"). Originally Robert Mitchum was to have played Doc Delaney in this presentation, staged around the same time as Olivier's previous "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof." Carrie Fisher, the daughter of Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, made her TV acting debut here.
