The brilliance of Beckett and Worth 1 July 2003
By Timothy King - Published on
Format: DVD
Irene Worth was a great actress. When teamed with Samuel Beckett's words, it is an experience to be treaured. True, Beckett is not for everyone. But for anyone with a brain, a heart, a soul, and a sense of humanity, Beckett connects. Those who don't "get" Beckett tend to hate Beckett and that's too bad. For the rest of us, Beckett hits a chord, creates a visceral reaction, illuminates the abyss. And Miss Worth (whose name was pronounced Irene-y, just as it is in England, where she spent a great deal of her career) is simply delightful to watch, as she always was. She combines the sadness, optimism, coyness, despair, beauty, and humour that is Winnie, in a way that few actresses could hope to do.

Essential and timeless: a perfect marriage of two artists 3 Oct. 2003
By Eliot in NY/Paris - Published on
Format: DVD
One of Beckett's most profound and moving plays is also one of his funniest.
Irene Worth, one of the world's greatest stage actresses, embodies one of theater's greatest female roles with both a lyrical tenderness and a deep sensuality.There is, in fact, nothing overblown or stagy about her performance: Worth is the quintessential Winnie. Famous for her deeply intelligent interpretations and blessed with a marvelously resonant voice, she is the ideal actress for a part that requires so little physicality and so much vocal depth. She understands every word of Beckett's text, and conveys her understanding with every breath she takes.
To say she is too "theatrical" and to ridicule the pronunciation of her name are pitifully inaccurate and pitifully beside the point.
The recording of her performance in this great play is a marvelous document to possess.

A great introduction to beckett's theatrical work 26 May 2006
By Erstwhile - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful production of Happy Days, as far as I know faithful to Beckett's specific directions (he considered his stage directions as important as the dialog). Irene Worth is magnificent, as is the actor who played Willy. By all means, buy this DVD and enjoy it. If you're new to Beckett, this will whet your appetite for more. For the big Beckett fan (like me), I highly recommend Beckett on Film, the 4-DVD set of all 19 of Beckett's theatrical works, with a fine documentary and commentary, done by 19 contemporary directors. It's pricey but well worth the money.

There is an interesting controversy about filming Beckett's work and the 'interpretation' that that implies. Make your own decision -- and enjoy.

Waiting for Beckett 3 Nov. 2012
By jar137 - Published on
Format: DVD
This tape is the only production of Happy Days I have seen. I am wary of Beckett productions (especially in the US) because they tend to be overly portentous and serious. Often, actors and directors seem to be intimidated by Beckett's simple genius, so they fill his works with such heaviness. (Similar to the problem Chekhov faces- so many melodramatic (hence anemic) flourishes that the basic humanity in his writing is completely lost). The camera work is distracting, with its choice of close-ups and focus. One loses the sense of the landscape in which the play is performed (always a significant element in Beckett). I was shocked at how horrible I found Worth's performance given some great performances I had seen from her on stage. As one commenter pointed out, she doesn't seem to understand the play at all. Ultimately, I would have to blame the barely talented Andrei Serban as director. Instead of the humanity which is Beckett's true strength (he embraces the absurdity of the human condition), he delivers a production that is so weighed down by "meaning" that he misses the whole point of the play. I found Worth's Winnie to be completely unengaging. A real disappointment, but not a surprise, given that Beckett is most often butchered by artists trying to prove their intellectual bona fides.

Terrific production of this Beckett play. Worth gives a brilliant performance. Glad it was documented.
