My Favorite Jason Robards Performances



Max Dugan, Max Dugan Returns

Seriously toyed with making this one #1 on the list but cooler heads prevailed...Robards is perfection as an ex-con and absentee father who tries to make amends with his daughter (Marsha Mason) and his grandson (Matthew Broderick, his film debut) by showing up at their house in the middle of the night...with a suitcase containing $687,000 dollars that he stole. Robards has some really lovely moments in this one, masterful performance which could have easily been phoned in by a lesser actor, but not by this guy.

I haven't seen many movies with Jason Robards, but of his movies that I've seen, Max Dugan Returns would have been #1 on my list.
If I answer a game thread correctly, just skip my turn and continue with the game.
