In 1952, star Kirk Douglas, director Vincente Minnelli, producer John Houseman and screenwriter Charles Schnee teamed for what many consider the greatest drama ever made about Hollywood: The Bad and the Beautiful. Ten years later, they took another powerful insider’s look at the movie business, this time adapting a book by Irwin Shaw. Douglas portrays has-been screen idol Jack Andrus. Just out of a sanitarium, Jack grabs at a small role in a movie shot in Rome by a director (Edward G. Robinson) whose career is also on the skids. When the director falls ill, Jack takes over, realizing this is his last shot at personal and professional redemption. Trenchant, confrontational and intensified by Minnelli’s genius for color, Two Weeks in Another Town captures the passion of creative people facing the abyss.

Warner Archive's Blu looks wonderful. It's still a mediocre film, however. Transfer quality is perfect. The movie...far less than.
In this he is a damaged director, just out of the asylum, trying to make a comeback on a picture in Rome. Hired by his old nemesis, Edward G. Robinson, he is walking a tight rope of frailty.
I remembered seeing this in my early teens and age has not diminished it.
