    During Oscar discussions I’ve seen people post here that this is a film they wish they could see. Just a heads up!

    (Coincidentally Peter Shaffer died Sunday but TCM has had this scheduled for a while.)

    Peter Firth should’ve easily won the Oscar in that otherwise ho-hum Best Supporting Actor line-up.

    I saw “Equus” in a prior TCM “31 Days of Oscar” festival. It’s quite stirring in story and performances.

    Well, I saw this version on screen and as a play. Very difficult for me to watch, (not for me for obvious reasons) but the film and the play I saw are both exquisite.

    Didn’t see the television version.
    RIP Mr. Shaffer.

    For me the play far exceeds in terms of excellence. Director Sidney Lumet’s decision to use living horses in the finale as opposed to the play’s use of men in black turtlenecks and iron frames didn’t work.

    On stage, there was a profound eroticism that enhanced the effect Alan Stang has on the psychiatrist. The film made it far more difficult to establish compassion for these two troubled souls despite brilliant performances.

    Agreed. The play made use of multi-coloured scarves and printed fabrics; players in tights. Not horses. Far easier to watch and a visual treat. But, still not a subject I’m “chomping at the bit” to revisit.

    Besides which, I am no fan of most professionals in that Industry…..
