Robert Morley (actor)
Maurice Evans (actor)

Format: all-region dvd
Runtime: 1h49m
Quality: Excellent conversion, some very minor colour aberrations. Colour 4:3 ratio.

Every scene propels the film through the collaboration of Gilbert and Sullivan, hitting most of the high points and portraying the lows with the sympathy and understanding that creative geniuses deserve.

Biography documenting the fraught and creatively tense relationship between master opera collaborators William S.Gilbert (played with aplomb by the portly Morley) and Arthur Sullivan (Evans). The film documents their collaboration from their first operetta in 1871, through to Sullivan's premature death at just 58, and Gilbert's subsequent knighthood early in the 20th century.
