rarely shown anywhere, but, one of the best comedies ever. Great performances by all with a terrific script.Wish I could buy a copy..................Carl Reiner's reflections on his introduction to show business
One of the great 60's comedies......

This is a priceless film.........the characters, the writing, the right-on position of timing and vulnerability to say and doExactly what the moment needed. Haven't seen it in many years...........but remember falling out of my seat with laughter!What wonderful actors, all of them. Be looking forward to another viewing soon.A.B.
enter laughing a great movie rarely shown
- ted buss
Years ago I had a vhs copy of "Enter Laughing" and I watched it until it wore out. Now searching for DVD to order but very difficult to find. I hope TCM will show it one day soon. This is a wonderful film. I believe it would be a popular addition to your already great lineup of old classics and more modern films.
Carl Reiner's Semi-Autobiography
- Linda Nitzschke
Please, TCM, show this movie so that others who haven't yet seen it (and I'm sure there are many) can enjoy it. I loved how the main character runs thru a series of laughs ("enter laughing"), trying to please the director, and he just can't get it right, so the last laugh kind of ends in a way one would end a sentence when asking a question. Maybe I just relate to the main character cuz I'd freeze, too, if I had to perform onstage, but what a funny gem of a movie. Also, I believe this movie contained the first performance of someone who would eventually become known on TV as "Meathead". I just happened onto this movie many years ago, and I'm surely glad I did!!
For movie AND theater fans.
This is a heavy dose of nostalgia, and that's part of its charm. My Favorite Year, which came later, has the same charm and sense of time and place, though set in a different era. The cast is first-rate. Reni Santoni shines as the young innocent given what only he sees as a golden opportunity to act. Jose Ferrer and the truly gifted Elaine May are hysterically funny as the low-rent theater "impresario" and his "ingenue" daughter, who magnamimously allow him to work for nothing, discounting the usual fee which he would be charged. Shelly Winters frets at home about what is happening to her son, who isn't having the hoped-for success in balancing a job and an acting "career". The great day arrives and he finally stumbles (You'll have to see it for yourself.) onstage, and what follows is sure to delight anyone with even a passing interest in theater. A truly satisfying and enjoyable movie.
A movie with heart...

The entire cast, especially Reni Santoni ("Poppy" of TV's "Seinfeld" fame)are great in this gentle, big-hearted comedy. Watch for Rob Reiner in a small role.
