This review is from: Man Who Came to Dinner [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
A literary lion descends on a small mid-western town and, after a fall, is confined a to wheelchair in his reluctant host's house. Thereafter he takes command of the house for his own purposes - such as lunch with a bunch of convict murderers, while expelling the family from the main rooms of the house so that they can't get in the way of such things as his telephone calls from Winston Churchill and Eleanor Roosevelt. He is monstrously rude to everybody else, but welcomes the diversion of visits from Hollywood chums. Monty Woolley makes a magnificent monster who finally redeems himself with an act of grace.
Fabulous dialogue delivered with lightning precision. Great stuff.
