This review is from: THE COMIC (DVD)
Loved this movie ever since I first saw it 40 years ago. It's both funny and sad . A brilliant comic who lets selfishness and alcohol destroy his marriage and career . The story was based on a number of silent film comedians. I think it's the best thing Dick van Dyke ever did . Mickey Rooney is perfect as his fellow actor and only friend. This film has the most poignant final scene of any comedy ever made.
