THE ENTERTAINER
April 24, 2013  | By David Bianculli

TCM, 8:00 p.m. ET

 
Tony Richardson directed this 1960 movie adaptation of the John Osborne play, which stars Laurence Olivier as fading vaudeville star Archie Rice. Written specifically for Olivier, it’s a demanding role, and a spectacularly shaded performance. Because Olivier is TCM’s Star of the Month, a full night of other Olivier movies follows, including 1957’s The Prince and the Showgirl at 1:30 a.m. ET.
