    Stephen Sondheim, the man, died today, at the age of 91.

    Stephen Sondheim, the artist, the writer, the composer, is still very much alive. As the endless tributes to him pour out, it becomes so very clear the broad, broad influence and impact this man has had to the world of musical theatre and those who love it.

    Anyway the rest of this movie is quite good, probably the best of the Best Years of Our Lives rip-offs that followed WWII, depicting wounded soldiers returning from the war having to live with their new disabilities.
