The Long Sunset

The Long Sunset is a 1963 Australian TV movie based on a play by R. C. Sheriff, it was directed by Colin Dean It was recorded live. Australian TV drama was rare at the time; the play had been filmed by the BBC in 1958. A Roman family during the last days of Roman Britain. Henry Gilbert as Julian Severus Lynne Murphy as Serena Severus James Condon as Arthur, leader of a band of Britons John Bell as Julian's son Sandra Gleeson Tim Cohen Guy le Claire Ronald Morse Richard Parry John Faassen; the critic from the Sydney Morning Herald wrote that "rhe gingerly stiffness of dialogue and manner that seems to overcome most dramatists and actors when they are playing at history was absent from the" production. He felt that the characters in the original play "are in any case incorrigible cardboard, but Colin Dean's production, despite a few visual ingenuities, seemed to emphasise rather than minimise their creaking unreality; the Romans either were querulous and fearful. None of them was more than spasmodically interesting."

The critic felt Gilbert "seemed to be taking part in a slow and stately pageant" while Condon was "conscientiously surly and thicktongued" while Bell and Faassen "were wasted in dull parts." The critix felt "the play would have seemed better if the performance had shown more evidence of the sort of rehearsal that allows actors to develop characterisations as well as learn lines and moves, but with devoted attention it is not to have much more in its favour than the romance of its historical idea."
