Katharine Hepburn rarely--if ever--gave a performance not worth watching, and in “Madwoman of Chaillot,” she presents one of her more memorable roles. As Jean Giraudoux's Madwoman, Hepburn leads an all-story cast including Charles Boyer,Dame Edith Evans, John Gavin, Paul Henreid, Richard Chamberlin, Yul Brynner, Donald Pleasance, and Danny Kaye (as The Ragpicker). It's a mad, mad, mad world in which they live and out of this madness, some order is to be found. (Of course, the real madness lies in the real world!) Colorful, catching, and sometimes with apologies to Giraudoux's original play!, the movie convinces us that sometimes it takee a madwoman to “cure” us of our sanity!
