eur tv presents the curtain rises presents THE CURTAIN RISES

A review by Mr. Ado Facetas

Eur-Tv will be doing the first ever television broadcast of the film "The Curtain Rises", which is not so much a filmed version of the controversial play but a filmed play. Eur-Tv, which in our opinion, is actually a cable station masquerading as a television station, says, nonetheless (in keeping with its pretense), it will censor the more pornographic aspects of the film. On second thought, as I now recall both play and film, I must agree it would be a little racy even for cable.
Eur-Tv will be showing it in 3 parts, which is not unusual, since the play was originally presented in 3 acts, though, overall, the original play more resembled a one-act play. Curiously, in the Eur-Tv broadcast, the first part of the film is presented as Part 2 and the second part as Part 1.
As with the film and the play, the names of the cast, director and author are not listed. Películas Desconhecido Co. Ltd. had assisted in the distribution of the film, along with the Greater Grotonwald Int'l Film Fund, whose Greater Grotonwald Playhouse staged the play in England and assisted with funding on the New York stage, though none of their members were involved in any part of the production. The four original black american cast members reprised their roles in the film.
Audiences who saw the play or the film may think a censored "The Curtain Rises" will be boring, but maybe not, because Eur-Tv has gone to the cutting floors and archives and found previously unseen footage which has been added to the film.
We have also managed to retrieve from Eur-Tv's cutting floor, film and images they did not want the television audience to see and we will be presenting them along with this review for your personal pleasure and perusal.
