Steambath (Broadway Theatre Archive)

Product Description

Factory sealed DVD

Imported from USA

This unique play presents the afterlife as a steam bath, in which dead souls continue to obsess about the same petty
concerns that obsessed them in their lives, until they are cast into a dark void by God, the Puerto Rican attendant
(José Pérez). But new arrival Tandy (Bill Bixby) at first refuses to accept what's happened, and when he finally does,
he pleads to be allowed to return to his life. Steambath was controversial in its day for its obscene language (which
was softened for this filmed version, originally presented on PBS), its satirical take on religion, and some brief
nudity by bombshell Valerie Perrine. Today it's still very entertaining, but mostly as a core sampling of the
surprisingly uncensored male attitudes from the dawn of the 1970s. Everyone gives a solid performance and Bixby's easy
charm makes his self-centered character sympathetic. --Bret Fetzer
