  1. Sean Patrick Stevens's rating of the film Pennies from Heaven

    The emotional wallop this series has for the viewer is cumulative which means tolerating the technical imperfections of the television during this era and the seemingly endless series of scenes where Bob Hoskins character has a serious case of "blue balls." The complex set of emotions the patient viewer will be privy to has to be seen to be believed.

  2. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film Pennies from Heaven

    4.5 stars. Brilliant. As terrific as the Steve Martin film is, this one is better.

    "I'm curious what my reaction - not knowing the story - to the film wouldn've been." http://illusionpodcast.blogspot.com/2015/10/episode-72-dennis-potters-pennies-from.html

  5. bennievermeer's rating of the film Pennies from Heaven

    Dennis Potter's television series 'Pennies from Heaven' (1978) is still a highpoint in the history of the small screen, where story (a daring tale of frustrated naivety) and form (Potter's unique brand of musical) fit each other perfectly. http://www.brnrd.net/blog/archive/2010/07/13/pennies-from-heaven
